Malaita leaders to start their second Peace and reconcilation summit

By Brian Wanga
In Auki

The second Malaita leaders’ Peace and Reconciliation Summit is fixed to begin tomorrow in the province’s capital, Auki.

The summit aims to put together Malaita’s perception on the recent social unrest before the proposed reconciliation talks with both the national and Guadalcanal provincial governments in Buala, Isabel province at the end of this month.

The three-day summit which ends this Friday is convened to provide an avenue for Malaita leaders to discuss different views of the social unrest and put them through relevant perspective before the Buala talks.

The summit also provides an opportunity for representatives of Ministry of Peace and Reconciliation to inform leaders of the Malaita Provincial Executive, the Malaita Peace and Reconciliation Committee and other stakeholders on the present government’s policy on the current peace and reconciliation process.

The summit is a follow-up on the First Malaita Leaders Summit held in Auki from 22nd to 26th November 2004.

The talks are aimed at putting together a common view on the social unrest before the signing of a tripartite Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the National and both the Malaita and Guadalcanal Provincial Governments.

The aim of the proposed tripartite MOU is to facilitate the peace and reconciliation process after the Premier and Leaders of Guadalcanal Province proposed reconciliation talks with the Premier of Malaita through the Ministry of National Unity Reconciliation and Peace.
