Calls for MP in Solomon Islands
by Radio New Zealand International
Community leaders of West Kwara’ae constituency in Malaita Province are said to have called on their MP, Sam Iduri, to rejoin the government to ensure development projects continue.
Mr Iduri defected to the Opposition, along with 9 nine other ministers three weeks ago, in an attempt to unseat the Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare.
A media statement from the government, said a community spokesperson, Benjamin Ladoa, believed the defection of Mr Iduri cast doubt on current government-funded development projects in the area.
They include the Auluta Palm Oil Project, which covers an area combining three Malaita constituencies.
