Honiara Remains Calm Prior to Sitting

Honiara remains calm this morning as everyone braces to see the turn out of the Motion of No-Confidence against Hon. Danny Philip, the current Solomon Islands Prime Minister.

The Honiara Central market and some business houses are closed however, for safety reasons.

Meanwhile, the Malaita Masina Forum's demonstration march scheduled for today has also been called off.

The Malaita Masina Forum had this week announced its intention to stage a peaceful demonstration on the same day the no-confidence motion will be tabled in parliament.

However, MMF's General Secretary, William Gua, stated that the march has been postponed pending the outcome of today's motion.

According to the national parliament, the motion is among few other business items for this November sitting.

The motion is expected to be moved immediately after messages and announcements by the Speaker and statements of government business from the Prime Minister.

Security around Honiara and particularly the parliament house will remain tight for today.
