The People’s Alliance Party is calling on political parties and other political groupings that intend to contest the 2014 General Elections to register as required under the newly passed Political Parties Integrity Act.
The Party’s Secretary General, Edward Kingmele made the call to coincide with Solomon Islands celebrating its 36 years of independence today.
He says political parties and other political groupings must register to contest the elections because only governments led by political parties have proved stable leadership in Solomon Islands.
Mr Kingmele says the People’s Alliance Party believes the majority of Solomon Islanders agree independent Members of Parliament have since independence day today 36 years ago been causing political instability in governments.
He says PAP is worried about rumors that political parties and political groupings with and without sitting Members of Parliament in the current National Parliament have been contemplating contesting the 2014 General Elections later this year as individuals.
MrKingmele says the PAP is being lured into the political contemplation but it has rejected it forthright.
But he says the party’s rejection of the thinking is because it believes the best option to ensure stable leadership both in parliament and in government in Solomon Islands is having political parties to lead governments.
