A motion of no confidence in the Malaita premier Richard Na'amo Irosaea is said to have been submitted to the Speaker of the Malaita provincial assembly today.

Details on the proposed mover of the motion and when it will be tabled are sketchy.

SIBC News was unable to confirm the reports with the Speaker of the assembly.

However, Premier Irosaea told SIBC News that he was aware of [yesterday's] submission of the motion.

However, Mr. Irosaea would not reveal the proposed mover of the motion and the date on which it will be moved.

But Mr. Irosaea said the Malaita provincial assembly will hold its first meeting for this year starting on the 25th of this month.

He would not comment on the motion, but said it was the right of the intended mover and his supporters to move the motion against him.
