Implementation of recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Report will be a major task this year, says the Governor-General, His Excellency Sir Frank Kabui.
His Excellency Kabui says the task will commence immediately after a body is set up in the Office of the Prime Minister and Cabinet to oversee the process of its implementation.
“A major task also for 2015 will be to commence the implementation of recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission report in conjunction with the Office of the Prime Minister. This will commence immediately after a body is set up in the Office of the Prime Minister and Cabinet to oversee the process of implementation.”
The Governor General adds, the Ministry of National Unity, Reconciliation and Peace will continue with the process of reconciliation and related programs in both Guadalcanal and Malaita and will also continue to pursue the Bougainville spill over effect with Choiseul and Western Provinces.
Sir Kabui was presenting the Speech from the Throne commemorating the commencement of Parliament Tuesday this week.
Meanwhile, the Governor General His Excellency Sir Frank Ofagioro Kabui has reminded the Democratic Coalition for Change Government (DCC) its Policy Statement, Translation and Strategy is only as good as its implementation.
His Excellency Frank Kabui said he looks forward with enormous confidence and hope, to the future, that the government’s policy intentions be implemented with much vigor and energy.
Mr Kabui emphasised, no matter how good the policy intentions are as reflected in the government’s strategy and programs, if it is not effectively implemented, then the strategic plan is as poor as the implementation outcome.
He urged the Sogavare-led Government not to disappoint Solomon Islanders but work together with the Government Caucus, Independent Group and Opposition bench – make a difference in the lives of Solomon Islanders.
His Excellency the Governor General was delivering the traditional ‘Speech from the Throne’ Tuesday marking the commencement of the 10th Parliament’s second meeting.
