Dear Editor – Much has been said in your column about the eligibility of the above candidate contesting the East Are’are electorate this time round by his critics. What came out clearly from his opponents is that they have seen Mr.Hanaria as a threat to them.
Mr.Hanaria as a Solomon Islander has the right just like you and I to contest. You all should not worry as your choice is the recent former and beating your likes in any constituency is very difficult as they have the money
Winning an election depend very much on how popular the candidate is amongst his constituents. And giving back the people’s dues rightly fully to them.
If you have done this in the recent past with the people’s money and related well with our people. I for one believe that Mr.Hanaria will not win the election but if you do otherwise then you will have to work extra hard.
Mentioning the petition all the time is not the issue but if you see it as a crime, pursue it in the court if you have all your evidences beyond reasonable doubts and has the money.
East Are’Are people deserve better leadership. The leadership they used to endure under late Edward Huniehu is missing and it’s time that they mandate somebody who can move the constituency forward in it’s development plans.
It is time that you and I need to explain to our people why good governance is important and that we should have it in this country. We need to act mature and honestly work with our people and leaders to develop our people and Solomon Islands as a nation.
Enough of playing around with our people’s lives.
Best of luck to all intending candidates for East Are’are and may the best wins.
