This was according to Prime Minister, Dr. Sikua, who further explained that the organized conference will help in the strengthening of political parties and regulating of behaviors of politicians.

Prime Minister Sikua encouraged the participants to make use of the opportunity to become the designers of the government's reform agenda for the country.

Prime Minister Sikua further said that the country is in the infant stage of its parliamentary democracy; however, "the solution lies within the country and its people."
