Anthony Veke had been declared premier of Guadalcanal province again on Tuesday at the Pacific Casino Hotel.
Mr Veke won by a close margin of 11 members whilst the ousted premier Stephen Panga has10.
Guadalcanal provincial Speaker Able Arambola officiated in the election according to the provincial standing orders.
The declaration was a continuation from the provinces last assembly meeting held in March and April this year.
The provincial speaker refused to comment after declaring Veke as premier.
In a statement from Premier Veke, he said his declaration was done according to the provinces standing orders.
“Today the speaker declared that I’m to become the Guadalcanal Premier since I stand unopposed in our meeting last month.
“This is a continuation of meeting from where we left since the injunction order by the high court rule last months.”
Premier Veke said his Government is serious about the development aspiration for Guadalcanal Province and had assured the Guadalcanal people.
“Let me assure you that my government is for the people. You are the reason for governing, no matter what and how long it takes we will strive to ensure that you are able to sleep well at night, you are able to have 3 meals a day, and you are able to send your kids to school.”
Outgoing premier Mr Panga congratulated Veke and asked of him to drive the province ahead in the right direction.
“Congratulation new Honourable Veke and his new executive, and wish you all the best in your governance to lead our province into the future.”
The Guadalcanal Political impasse started in 2012 when Mr Panga ousted Premier Veke in a no confidence vote.
The political turmoil raged on throughout 2013, when Premier Panga held on to power with a minority of his executive to an extent where he only left with two executive members.
Not until April this year when the ministry of provincial Government dissolved the Panga’s leadership which ended them in the high court.
A motion of no confidence vote was again moved against him in his executive’s absence.
