THE workshop to report on the progress of the present constitutional reform process on federal government system in Solomon Islands will be held in Gizo, Western province.

The two-day workshop will be held this week, beginning on Thursday, March 22, 2018.

Following the change of leadership by the Solomon Islands Democratic Coalition for Change Government (DCCG), SIDCCG recently, no clear mandate has been given in terms of policy direction by the Government pertaining to the present constitution reform which have led to this important national agenda being silenced and relegated a peripheral standing in terms of public policy.

Western province principal administrator Gideon Tuke told Island Sun Gizo yesterday that this raises eyebrows especially by leaders of Western province, whose aspiration and determination for an autonomous system of government remain uncompromised.

Mr Tuke said there is a need for collaborative effort through this workshop to help rekindle and reignite its significance as a national agenda by leaders and people of Western province.

Tuke said the purpose of this workshop is to inform and update leaders of the Western province of the need to demand of the national government its policy position on this important national obligation.
