The People’s Alliance Party has signed a coalition agreement with political parties forming the Democratic Coalition for Change Government.
The agreement was signed in Honiara yesterday.
Secretary of the United Democratic Party, Andrew Muaki says the coalition agreement signed by the UDP, Kadere Party and the Peoples Alliance Party formalizes an existing informal arrangement since the DCC Government was formed.
Mr Muaki says, the Peoples Alliance Party had previously signed a coalition agreement with Opposition Parties which made it impossible for it to sign a coalition agreement with the UDP and Kadere last December because of the requirements of the Political Parties Integrity Act 2014.
He says the Peoples Alliance Party bound by its agreement with the Opposition Group until around January 9 this year.
Mr Muaki says the Party is now free to sign with the coalition and is now an equal member of the DCC Government.
He says the Coalition is in the process of submitting the Coalition Agreement with the Office of the Registrar of Political Parties.
