MALAITAN MPs in the ruling DCGA have denied reports they are resigning en masse from the Government.

Solomon Star newspaper published the claim last Friday.

But a statement the Government issued yesterday described the article as “fallacy and sloppy journalism”.  

“The National government is intact with the full support of all Malaita MPs in the DCGA,” the statement said.

“Constituency tours and awareness by all Malaita Members of Parliament in the DCGA are ongoing and constituents have been very receptive,” it added.

“We strongly deny any rift within the Malaita MPs or government over constituency awareness.

“Tying the resignation with constituency awareness is cheap politics.”

The statement said the government will not bow down to the evil intention of a few people adding, intimidation, bullying and violence have no place in our society.

“The government will not allow elements of disunity, chaos and anarchy driven by the narrow political agendas of a very few individuals to overrun it.

“The media must not allow itself to be used for rampant speculation or being used to advance other people’s interest rather than that of the country.”
