Guadalacanal provincial members appoint new premier in a landslide victory

Guadalcanal Province has stamped its mark beside Isabel, Rennel and Bellona, and Malaita to have new premiers after recent elections. Eventhough wards 6 to 30 in Malaita are expected to go to the polls this coming monday, the outgoing premier Reuben Moli has already lost his seat to a new candidate.

In a landslide victory this morning during the Guadalcanal executives meeting, Honourable Joash Salani was elected as the new premier. Hon Salani polled 15 votes whilst his only rival, the out-going deputy premier Stephen Panga got five votes.

It is understood Premier Salani is a former Speaker of the Guadalcanal Provincial Assembly for the past eight years. Premier Salani hopes to appoint his executive over the weekend.
