One finishes, one escalates. Election fever


CHOISEUL Province is preparing for the Provincial Government election coming next month.

In light of the process, former Premier of Choiseul Province Mr Clement Kengava urges Lauru citizens to seriously make good choices when voting for their MPA leaders.

Recently he said the confirmation made by the Permanent Secretary (PS) of the Ministry of Provincial Government and Institutional Strengthening (MPGIS) at the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) that Choiseul and Western Provinces Provincial Elections are to be held in June 2018 has been a relief for the voters of the province.

This is after their rights to choose new Assemblies in September last year was suppressed through deferments.

“I call on Choiseul voters to not take the provincial election lightly or treat it as a game, be serious about it because Choiseul needs a new roadmap in its relationship with the National Government,” says Kengava.

The former Northwest Choiseul MP and also a former Premier is encouraging people who believe in developing Choiseul Province to go ahead and contest for the province’s 16 seats (Provincial Assembly).

Meanwhile, according to Mr Nerio Ulemiki the media coordinator for Christ the King Parish at Voruvoru reporting, locals want to see a leader who can take proper care for the people by making regular visits to every community in the Wards and to inform people about the government and fairly distribute development services to all the communities.
