FORMER Honiara City Councillor, Lawrence Makili has called on the President of the People’s Alliance Party (PAP) Sir Nathaniel Waena to keep out of Solomon Islands politics.
Mr Makili made the remarks following weeks of speculation as to which political camp PAP and its members was supporting, with Sir Nathaniel signing a Coalition with the Mendana Hotel SIPDC (Solomon Islands People’s Democratic Coalition) without the consent of his members who were with the DCC (Democratic Coalition for Change) camp at Honiara Hotel.
“Why does Sir Nathaniel have to belittle himself from the statues of a former Governor General of Solomon Islands to get involved with politics in this new era?
“He should have just kept out from politics completely rather then get involved and tarnish his own reputation as a senior citizen of this country.
“Sir Nathaniel himself was one of the grasshoppers during his tenure in Parliament and the actions he had shown in not conversing with his elected MP’s and then signing with the opposite camp just portrays the kind of leader he is,” Mr Makili said.
Mr Makili also added that Sir Nathaniel should now see the results of his actions in the resignations of the three MP’s last week from PAP.
“The three resigning is a clear indication that the President no longer has the confidence of his members therefore should stay out of the party and Solomon Islands politics completely,” Mr Makili said.
