Solomon government denies Fono's claim that the Deputy PM post had been offered to him

Solomon Islands Acting Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Gordon Lilo Darcy says that the Government never offered the Deputy Prime Minister post to Opposition Leader Fred Fono.

Mr Darcy made the clarification during a press conference on Friday.

Local newspaper Solomon Star had reported last week that the Opposition Leader, Fred Fono had been offered the Deputy Prime Minister's post.

But Mr Darcy said that the government is not aware of the offer and does not need the services of Mr Fono.

The Acting Deputy Prime Minister also said that he thinks it is an embarrassment for Mr Fono to have made a public statement when no such offer was made.

He said the government already has a comfortable majority and Mr Fono should stick to his duty as the Opposition Leader of the country.
