SI should adopt State Government System without delay: says PAP wing leader
Mr Kengava says instead the government should finalize the drafted constitution based on the "Green Paper" approved by the Parliament last year so that the new constitution can be tabled in parliament this year or early next year.
The MP says the future of Solomon Islands rests on political solutions and not economic packages to the Provinces.
Mr Kengava calls on the government to treat the adoption of the new constitution as the priority political solution for change and rebuilding of a new Solomon Islands.
He says the government should concentrate more in assisting Provinces build infrastructures like roads, wharves and airfields and allow each Province to draw up their rural Development Policy in preparation for becoming states under the new Federal government.
Mr Kengava praises the government for setting up a special division to address Constitutional Reform and State Government.
