The Minister for Provincial Government and Institutional Strengthening (MPGIS), Rollen Seleso and Malaita Premier Daniel Suidani have resolved recent differences during a meeting in Honiara yesterday.
Minister Seleso invited Premier Suidani and three members of his Executive to sort out recent misunderstandings which were sensationalized by the print media.
The meeting was attended by Deputy Prime Minister Manasseh Maelanga, Minister for Justice and Legal Affairs (MJLA) Makario Tagini, Minister for National Planning and Development Coordination (MNPDC) Rex Ramofafia and Minister for Agriculture and Livestock (MAL) Senley Levi Filualea and three MPAs from the Malaita Provincial Executive.
The leaders have expressed their views and have reached a common understanding on issues raised which forms the way forward for further dialogue.
Provincial Government Minister Rollen Seleso recently warned Premier Suidani to work and cooperate with the national government or risk having his provincial government suspended.
Premier Suidani insisted that his government did not do anything wrong to warrant such a warning, stating in a strongly worded press statement that if the Sogavare Government cares about good governance and leadership as required of mandated leaders, then his government is doing just fine in that department.
An official statement outlining the outcomes of the meeting will be released soon.
