Agovaka seeks 5th term with Central Guadalcanal constituency


THE Ownership, Unity and Responsibility (OUR) Party, candidate Peter Shanel Agovaka for the Central Guadalcanal Constituency is seeking his fifth term in parliament.

Agovaka was accompanied by OUR Party Wing leader, Caretaker Prime Minister, Manasseh Sogavare, Deputy Wing Leader, Bradly Tovosia and Candidate for Gizo Kolombangara, Jimson Tanangada during the OUR Party’s launching for the Central Guadalcanal Constituency at Henderson.

Whilst delivering his speech, Agovaka touched on how land ownership is an important issue in Guadalcanal and assured voters that land restitution will be prioritised if he and the party retains majority seats in the next parliament.

“A policy we want to focus on if this party (OUR) comes back, is the policy of land restitution; recognising landowners of Guadalcanal particularlyy in Honiara, Lungga-Tenaru and other areas the government has taken without recognising the indigenous landowners,” Agovaka said.

Agovaka emphasised that OUR party unlike other political parties is about achieving their vison.

 “We just don’t talk, it isn’t a dream, it is our vision and we have achieved a lot of our visions,” he said.  

He alluded that the initial formation of the OUR Party came about after the ethnic tension to find ways to solve political issues, land problems, and other socio-economic issues.

Reflecting on Central Guadalcanal’s contribution to the national economy, he reminded the audience of the current developments hosted in the constituency.

“We Central Guadalcanal we stood the test of time, we play an important role in the country’s economy,” he said, alluding to the contribution to the continuous development of Tina Hydro, Gold Ridge and parts of GPPOL.

He assured the audience that OUR Party is one of the most capable political parties to lead the country forward.    

“This is our party. We will steer the ship for the betterment of our people and our country,” Agovaka assured.
