DEREK Sikua question his Parliament colleagues over what they are afraid off after hearing reports of people being lured to register and vote in other constituencies under their influence.

When asked over such in an interview yesterday, the Member of Parliament for North East Guadalcanal replied with this bold question challenging his Parliament colleagues of the national government.

“What are you afraid off? If you are doing the right thing for your people then what are you afraid off? I am very surprised with my colleagues over such reports and they should be ashamed of themselves. That is what I want to say to my colleagues.”

Mr Sikua commented over reports of the cross border registration for voting currently occurring as well explained from his believe that it is a direct result of the amendment recently passed having broadening the definition of ‘ordinary residence’.
