MALAITA Province premier Peter Chanel Ramohia has been asked to review and relieve some of the political appointees engaged by the past executive.
A concern Malaitan Robert Unu said those appointed politically by the past government were an added cost to the province.
“It was obvious these people did nothing tangible really in supporting the past executive, therefore they will also be liabilities to the new executive.
“While they were paid at the super scale level for doing nothing, it validates the call to rid them to cut expenses and build revenue which should go to providing essential services for people.”
When contacted on the matter, the new premier said he has a plan for them.
“We will carry out an assessment when we settle properly, but they could be useful if they are properly asked to perform.
“Having said that, we may need to get rid of some because we will only need right people to take this province from where it was.”
He said his new executive will meet soon to discuss the many immediate issues of concern to people and the government.
He appealed to all Malaita to have confidence in the new government and support their work in order to achieve changes the province want.
