Don't leave Sogavare alone lets back: Manga, Olovae and Sopaghe

The current political crisis in the country has taken a not so surprising twist with the return to government of the three government back bench MPs who've announced their resignation yesterday.

The three MPs are immediately appointed to ministerial positions and they have taken their oaths as ministers yeterday afternoon at Government House.

The three are Temotu Pele MP, Martin Maga, South Vella La Vella MP, Trevor Olavae and North Guadalcanal MP Martin Sopaghe.

Mr Maga takes the Justice and Legal Affairs port folio, Mr Olavae was given the National Planning and Aid Coordination ministry whilst Mr Sopaghe takes on the Ministry for Infrastructure Development.

The three had joined nine government ministers in the Grand Coalition for Change Government who announced their resignation from the government yesterday.

The Parliamentary Opposition which has 17 MPs and the faction of breakaway ministers are said to not be shaken by the latest development.

The Opposition Office says none of their members is crossing the floor and they still have the majority with the nine defected ministers.
