North Malaita Constituents write to government seeking by-election if medical report suggest MP is unwell for duties

Rural constituents of North Malaita Constituency, on Malaita have requested the government to engage a specialist medical doctor to certify the health of their member of Parliament, Daniel Enele Kwanairara.

Mr Kwanairara had a stroke early this year and was unable to attend the last two Parliament sittings.

In a letter addressed to the Prime Minister, a group of North Malaita people says they want the government to engage a doctor to determine the health of their MP.

The letter says if the MP is medically unfit to perform his Parliamentary roles, then he should vacate his seat so that a by-election would be held for the North Malaita Constituency.

It says it's important for the people of the constituency to have a voice or representative in Parliament.

The letter says the people have been respectful of their MP for the last two consecutive Parliament sittings, hoping that he would recover to perform his duties.

It says only a medical doctor can certify the health status of the North Malaita MP and whether he is fit to perform his duties.

The letter was also copied to the Governor General, Speaker of the National Parliament, Electoral Commission and the Attorney General.
