Former Malaita deputy premier calls on national leaders to collectively support Sogavare's coalition government

By Brian Wanga, in Auki

Former Deputy Premier of Malaita Province Mr Malcolm Maefilia has appealed to all national leaders to put their heads together and Support the Grand Coalition for Change Government led by Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare.

He made the call after eye witnessing the signing of documents allowing the surveying of Auluta basin on Saturday in Auki, Malaita Province.

“The Auluta proposed development is not a new issue and has been talked about for a very long time by previous national and provincial governments but nothing has been done.

“Until recently that the Grand Coalition for Change Government led by Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare in a very short time in office has already facilitated the signing of the documents granting surveying to take place in Auluta basin,” he said.

“This makes me and many, especially the older generation of leaders, very happy to witness”.

He further added that he was disturbed and dismayed to learn that there was a planned Motion of No Confidence tabled for this Friday by a National Parliament member from Malaita.

Mr Maefilia urged all National Parliament leaders on behalf of many ordinary Solomon Islanders to defeat the Motion of No Confidence as the Government of the day do implements its policies.

He said: “Political issues rightly belong to you in Parliament but we the common people of Solomon Islands just want to see and participate in development and we now witness the Grand Coalition for Change Government take the lead in doing something for us.”
