Solomon Islands Parliament passes Bill to review RAMSI

The National Parliament of Solomon Islands yesterday passed a motion for a review of the Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands (RAMSI).

The motion was tabled by Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare.

In moving it, Prime minister Sogavare said the motion is in line with the Act, and aims to strengthen the partnership between Solomon Islands government and RAMSI.

Meanwhile, Opposition Leader Fred Fono has suggested that the government consult the ordinary people of Solomon Islands before making amendments to the Act governing RAMSI.

He said members of Parliament should be given the time to go through the Act to suggest changes where applicable to make the presence and work of RAMSI complementary to that of the national government.

All members who spoke on the motion have praised the many assistance RAMSI had given through the restoration of law and order, the judicial sector, provincial development involvement, education and other sectors.
