Response to Samuel Mola

What Samuel described as "minor superficial issue" is infact an offence according to Solomon Islands Police Commissioner. I wonder if it will be taken up as a case against Dr. George, and that he (Samuel) called it a minor issue? Although it's true seeing such issues from different perspectives, there are constitutionally defined channels and procedures that must be adhered to.

I uphold Dr. George as a man of intergrity and ethical principles. However, the interruption to the counting process is what matters. It is not what he has claimed to have seen that erred during the process. On the other hand, his claims would merely be seen as allegations unless the Court proves otherwise if a legal challenge is taken by him.

In the meantime, let's rest this issue on Dr. George in peace. After all, the winner had been decided and the onus is on Dr. George to take up the challenge through a formal petition.
