The Parliamentary opposition group has indicated their open plan to move a motion of no confidence in the Democratic Coalition for Change (DCC) government.
An insider revealed that it is not confirmed, but it remains open, the plan to move the motion after the passage of the national budget in the March sitting.
“The office of the leader of opposition has received requests from senior government backbenchers to move a motion of no confidence in the upcoming Parliament sitting,” the insider said.
He said MP for Central Honiara Moffatt Fugui with other government MPs has expressed their political concerns to opposition side frequently.
“At the moment, we do not want to destabilise the government, because they are preparing the national budget.
“It’s important that the government passes the national budget before we could asses and confirm whether or not we can move a motion against the DCC.”
President of the party that anchors DCC, the United Democratic Party Sir Thomas Chan yesterday said he have not heard of any plans to move a motion.
“As far as I know, Mr Fugui is with the government, but there is nothing that warrants such moves.
“But the UDP party maintains its membership solidarity.”
The DCC Government has 19 UDP members.
Sources in the Office of the Prime Minister said they have no knowledge about the plan but insisted that DCC maintains its solidarity.
“And there is nothing wrong in Sogavare’s leadership that the opposition would capitalise on.
“Rence Sore’s political appointment is not an issue because he was cleared by police from the allegations.
“We have the police investigation report that cleared Mr Sore, which was why he was appointed.
“This government is serious about implementing its policies and objectives after its launching.
“People of this country want the policies implemented and not political games that takes up time and money.”
