THE Western Provincial Assembly will convene their second full assembly sitting today over the province’s 2018/2019 budget.
Western Province Clerk to the Assembly Kevin Paia told Island Sun Gizo the 26-member assembly house will convene their second sitting at 9am.
He said on Monday this week they had met over the province’s 2017/18 supplementary budget.
Today’s sitting is for the budget which will carry the province throughout this year to the next.
“Today, the second Full Assembly will debate and consider as deliberate on the 2018/2019 budget estimates.”
Island Sun understands that this meeting would be the last assembly meeting of the 11 executive under Premier Maepioh’s captaincy.
