Opposition supports integrity bill

Mr Huniehu says the Opposition will support Government if and when it decides to introduce an integrity bill.

Mr Huniehu says the Opposition will support Government if and when it decides to introduce an integrity bill.

"Whilst we are a watch-dog to government it does not mean the Opposition will disagree with everything government does" Opposition spokesman Edward Huniehu said. "Stability within the executive is very important"

Mr Huniehu says such proactive policies, moved by the Government, will get the support of the government. "Proactive policies are easily justifiable, that's what we need" Mr Huniehu said.

Solomontimes understands that the proposed Bill, still in its draft form, will restrict MPs moving from one political party to another.

Those who defy such rule could face disciplinary action which may result in disqualification as an M-P.
