POLITICAL PARTIES INTEGRITY BILL TO BE RE-INTRODUCED IN 2014
Prime Minister Gordon Darcy Lilo has said he wants to re-introduce the Political Parties Integrity Bill this year, to ensure political stability in the country’s governance processes.
Mr. Lilo revealed this in a prayer breakfast held in Honiara this week.
He said the NCRA government is looking forward to improving the processes of governance in the country.
The Prime Minister added that political instability had undermined the country’s development a great deal in the past, adding that this is the change of political government without any apparent agenda and without improving the situation for the majority.
Terming this as grass-hopper behaviour Mr. Lilo said they want to re-introduce the bill to keep leaders in check.
“And this is often termed “grass-hopper” behaviour. We want to reintroduce the Political Parties Integrity Bill to achieve that and addition, we must continue to keep leaders in check. The NCRA Government will also bring to Parliament the new Leadership Code Act which will keep the leaders in constant check”.
SIBC News understands the Political Parties Integrity Bill was also introduced in parliament but was not able to go through last year.
