Former Governor General and one of the founding fathers of the Solomon Islands Constitution, Sir Baddley Devesi, says Prime Minister Dr Derek Sikua is losing his grip on the nation's leadership and should consider stepping down.

Sir Baddley says recent government activities reported by the media is indication that someone else is running the government and not the Prime Minister.

He says Prime Minister Sikua has not made any satisfactory answers to controversial national issues - including the Antech Computer fiasco, the recent parliamentary entitlement awards to M-Ps and the recent sale of the Earth Movers badge back to its owners by the Finance Minister.

He says Prime Minister Sikua's leadership is too weak and he should consider stepping down.
