PARLIAMENT SPECIALLY ADJOURNED TO AUGUST 21ST

WEDNESDAY 9TH AUGUST 2017

At the adjournment of Parliament on Wednesday 2nd August 2017, the current 6th meeting of the 10th Parliament has then stand adjourned until Monday the 21st of August 2017.

The special adjournment motion was moved by the Hon. Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare based on the following reasons:

  • That the cabinet will bring a supplementary appropriation which is still being develop awaiting cabinet’s finalization before presenting to PAC for their task of scrutiny which will take a number of days to hear all line ministries and other stakeholders
  • Also a very big event on the 75th Anniversary of the landing of the Allied forces on our shores which began on the 5th of August and we’re expecting high ranking military and naval officials from both United states and Australia hence government will engage in a number of activities for this program
  • Also the Prime Minister has got an invitation from the Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull on the 11th of this month for a week’s state visit during which time the security treaty will be executed between Solomon Islands and Australia. This is to discuss the arrangement if something goes wrong or issues within our own security then they will still come to our assistance despite RAMSI’s departure.

The Leader of opposition Hon Jeremy Manele in reply said he does not have any difficulties in supporting the motion of special adjournment but supported the reasons alluded to by the PM as straight forward and genuine.

Hon. Manele added that as a member of the PAC they will also need time to conduct hearings on the proposed supplementary appropriation.

Hon. Manele further explained that most members of Parliament will also be engaged as well on the Anniversary program to commemorate the landing of the Allied forces on our shores 75 years ago during the World War 2.

He finally stated that the Prime Minister’s state visit to Australia on the 11th of August is also very important as both leaders will discuss matters concerning our country’s security.

The motion was therefore passed and Parliament will resume on Monday 21st August as a result of the special adjournment moved by Hon. Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare.
