Newly installed minister for Aviation & Communication Peter Shanel told the house last week that there is nothing for the Members of Parliament (MPs) to fight over, despite government is running on minority rule.
Speaking on the floor of parliament when argument broke out over the proposed motion of no confidence Shanel told the house that; “nothing good will delivers for the people if we come here to argue.”
Debates in parliament last week has developed into hurt and anger as resigned ministers and the Prime Minister (PM) Manasseh Sogavare finger point each on misappropriation of funds and accumulation of unexplained wealth, which resulted in their challenge to table a motion of no confidence on Friday this week.
Responding to the argument by between PM and his resigned ministers, Shanel stated that there is nothing for them to argue about.
Shanel reiterated that government needs to continue with its development program, in spite of having minority number.
MP for Central Guadalcanal discourages the idea to table a motion on Friday 30th of this month, stating it is not fair and just.
“If there’s any allegation or disappointment on this government then take it to court, rather than coming here to throw mud on each other,” Shanel uttered.
He further stated that MPs from both sides of the house are there to discuss national issues in order to set the country on the right direction, but not to blame each other and finger pointing over alleged misused of funds.
Despite supporting the motion for a special adjournment to December, the motion was defeated which will see a motion of confidence being table this coming Friday.
