Malaita Premier asks Solomon Islanders to be cautious about state government
Malaita Premier Richard Na'amo Irosaea said recent problems faced by the country stemmed from discontentment over the weakness of the Central Government system and highlights the need for greater reconciliation among people and provinces.
He said the process of national reconciliation must first and foremost involve all provinces in Solomon Islands.
He said that for any meaningful reconciliation within the country to happen, it must be based and founded on truth and honesty.
The Government Communications Unit says the premier further emphasized that as a country, it is important that Solomon Islands study and take into account the cost of the proposed systems of government and assess its capacity to absorb the cost for now and into the future.
He stressed that Malaita Province is not against the State Government System but that any government system to be adopted must ensure that it leads to the improvement of livelihoods of the common majority of the people of Solomon Islands.
