Fono confident of removing Prime Minister Sogavare in no-confidence motion

Solomon Islands Leader of Opposition, Hon Fred Fono, says the opposition grouping is confident it has the number and support to win its upcoming motion of no confidence against Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare.

Mr Fono claims the group has the support of a number of government ministers and backbenchers who are unhappy with the leadership style of Mr Sogavare.

He says the government ministers and back bench MPs are only waiting to pass the 2007 budget this week before resigning from Parliament.

Mr Fono says the motion is another attempt by the opposition grouping to save the country from the downward trend it is taking.

He says the group's reasons for moving the motion are already public knowledge.

The opposition which is comprised of the three political groupings has mandated Small Malaita MP, William Haomae to move the motion this Friday.
