A concerned Malaita man has called on the government to ensure that tight security is provided for Malaita during next year’s general elections.
Catechist Anthony Mamali said, “This is very important that in Malaita during the past few years we have experienced and came across some unlawful behaviors during the election and counting period.
“The upcoming national general election as I for one is a very crucial election where most constituencies in Malaita and the country at large need change especially for a better future for the country.
Mamali added during the 2014 national general election a brawl happened at one of the counting venues in Auki where supporters from the other candidates almost clashed by shouting abusive words to each other.
“Those kind of practices must avoided because we need clean voting must be seen during the election period.
“I call on the Auki police or the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force (RSIPF) to get prepared for this important activity that will take place early next year 2019 throughout our country Solomon Islands.”
Mamali also calls on all Malaitans to vote wisely.
