Mr Boyers is without principles: Huni'ehu-after Boyers made decision to be minister of finance

Opposition spokesman for Finance and Treasury, and M-P for East Are-Are Edward Huni'ehu has expressed surprise at the swearing in of his former Opposition colleague as Finance Minister in the Sogavare-led government.

Former outspoken Opposition member and M-P for West New Georgia and Vona Vona, Peter Boyers was sworn in as Finance Minister yesterday afternoon as soon as he had arrived in the country.

Mr Huni'ehu says Mr Boyers acceptance of the portfolio only shows that he is a person without principles.

He says Mr Boyers has now joined a government of which he had been a major critic on fundamental issues among which were the leadership of the Prime Minister and the Julian Moti issue.

Mr Huni'ehu says Mr Boyers accepted the Finance portfolio for his own selfish interests and not on national interests which he says he represents.

He says outside forces may be responsible for the decision Mr Boyers has made because no-one can reconcile or measure his actions against the public statements he had made over the last two years.

"May be someone with other interests may have influenced his decision. Because if you read between the lines, the way Mr Boyers has been criticising government over the last two years, his action by joining the same government that he had been critical about demonstrates that there must some outside forces involve his decision. It couldn't be him alone."
