Public Accounts Committee Chairman accuses Solomons PM of sleeping in parliament

Solomon Islands Prime Minister Dr Derek Sikua had been criticised for sleeping in his seat during debate in the chamber of Parliament.

Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee, Francis Zama accused Prime Minister Derek Sikua of demeaning the status of the Prime Minister and Parliament by falling asleep during debate on the Sine Die motion.

But the office of the Prime Minister says Dr Sikua was not feeling well and police had to help him leave Parliament chamber.

However, Mr Zama said it was obvious Prime Minister Sikua looked drunk and that had been the cause for falling asleep in Parliament.

But, Deputy Speaker of Parliament Clement Kengava ruled that there was no justification for Mr Zama to continue to ridicule the Prime Minister in parliament.
