Gov't firm, says Tran

West Honiara MP, Namson Tran
CHAIRMAN of Government Caucus Namson Tran says the Government’s support for embattled Prime Minister Gordon Darcy Lilo has been unwavering.

Mr Tran said as a coalition they would not buy into cheap political games as the government is determined to carry out more national plans this year under the “diligent leadership” of Mr Lilo.

“The government has achieved so much in its first year under the leadership of Mr Lilo and we would like to build on the gains in 2013 with a lot of major projects on the pipeline for implementation,” he said.

This has also ended speculations that some government members were unhappy with the sex allegations against Prime Minister Lilo; thus planning to desert him.

But Mr Tran said the current issue has in no way affected the determination of the coalition to carry on from where they had left last year.

The Member of Parliament for West Honiara made the assurance yesterday following media attacks on the Prime Minister which also called for his resignation.

Mr Tran added the accusations were based on fabricated lies which have now gone before the High Court.

“Our politics has gone really cheap,” the chairman of Government Caucus said.

Mr Tran said that the call made by former Prime Minister Sir Peter Kenilorea was unjustified as his case was completely different from the accusations leveled against Mr Lilo, describing the two cases as ‘incomparable’.

The chairman of Government Caucus urged all parties to respect the process as the matter was now before the court.

“The court process is the fair course to pursue so that justice is delivered to all stakeholders,” Mr Tran said.

Meanwhile, Mr Tran said that the least Prime Minister Lilo would like is to accept a sympathy from the likes of former politician Alfred Sasako.
