North Malaita Constituency MP rep rubbishes peoples' call for him to step down
A group of people from his constituency have requested the government to engage a specialist medical doctor to certify the health of their member of Parliament,
Mr Kwanairara has had a stroke early this year and had been unable to attend the last meeting of Parliament
But in response to those concerns an officer of the Parliamentary Independent Group Office, Wilson Mamae, says Mr Kwanairara missed only on Parliament and not two meetings as stated by the people.
Mr Mamae says the National Parliament Presiding officer was also fully aware that the MP's absence was due to the member being ill.
He says regarding the suggestion for the government to engage a medical doctor to certify the health of the MP, Mr Mamae says the M-P had been checked by doctors.
Mr Mamae says so far there is no medical report to suggest the MP is medically unfit to perform his Parliamentary work.
He says instead the MP has asked his people to be patient and wait for the 2010 national general election to chose a new leader for North Malaita Constituency.
