Malaita Provincial Government wants RAMSI to stay

The Malaita Provincial Government has condemned any move to oust the Australian component of the Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands.

Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare threatened to expel the Australian component in RAMSI during the recent Parliament meeting.

Premier Rueben Moli says the threats by the Prime Minister did not represent the wishes of Malaita Province.

He says the majority of people on Malaita appreciate the work done by Australia through RAMSI in restoring law and order in Solomon Islands.

"To announce such a move without consulting the people of Solomon Islands as to what we would like to happen in Solomon Islands, especially concerning the security and the welfare of the people, we see it as a slap in the face of the government's policy which talks about rural development.
