SI Opposition leader defers motion of no confidence

The Solomon Islands opposition leader Fred Fono has withdrawn the motion of no confidence in the Prime Minister, Manasseh Sogavare.

Mr Fono has asked that the motion be deferred from today's order paper.

"Thank you Mr Speaker, I too beg leave that Standing Order 31(1) be suspended under Standing Order 81 to withdraw the motion I was to move today. The motion of no confidence in the Prime minister to have it moved on the Friday the 13th, October 2006."

Speaking to journalists after parliament was adjourned this morning, Mr Fono said he deferred the motion because of security threats.

He said members from both the opposition and government sides who signed a memorandum of understanding in support of the motion have received threats.
