Chan wants nothing to do with politics


PRESIDENT of the United Democratic Party (UDP) Sir Thomas Chan, says he refuses to have anything to do with the current political situation.

Chan strongly emphasised in a phone conversation with Island Sun last night when queried about the current political situation and the Opposition camp at the Honiara Hotel.

UDP is the main political party that makes up the Democratic Coalition for Change Government (DCCG).

Honourable Snyder Rini and Hon Danny Phillip have not formally resigned as members of the UDP.

This was confirmed to the paper last night by the Registrar of the Political Parties Commission, Calvin Ziru.

Since they have not formally resigned from UDP, the duo remain key leaders of the party following the resignation of the caretaker Prime Minister Hon Manasseh Sogavare and others from UDP.

Chan told Island Sun last night that at this time, he refuses to comment on anything with regards to the political situation because he chooses not to be judgemental of the politicians’ decisions.

“I will comment at a later time when I see is fit and when it comes to national interest and the welfare of the people of Solomon Islands and the future of our children,” Sir Thomas said.
