The Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands has congratulated the Solomon Islands people, the Solomon Islands Electoral Commission and the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force for conducting a fair, free and peaceful National General Election on 19 November 2014.
In a statement the RAMSI Special Coordinator, Justin Braithwaite says, with all the results from the 50 constituencies now declared,
RAMSI commends the people of Solomon Islands for the peaceful way in which they exercised their democratic rights.
The Special Coordinator also said in casting their ballots, Solomon Islanders have had their say on who they want to represent them in the National Parliament for the next four years.
She said a successful election of this kind sends a clear message to the rest of the world that Solomon Islands is a democratic and stable member of the international community.
She said it also sends all the right signals to investors, confirming that this is a country open for business.
The RAMSI Special Coordinator says, all Solomon Islanders can rightly be proud of these achievements.
Meanwhile, the Special Coordinator has appealed to the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force to continue in their efforts to provide security,
law and order as the MP-elects gather to form the Solomon Islands next Government.
Justin Braithwaite says with the newly elected Members of Parliament now gathering in Honiara to form the next government and to elect a Prime Minister, RAMSI also calls on citizens to respect the rule of
law during this process.
She said, RAMSI asks all Solomon Islanders to support their police as they work with communities and the new members of parliament, to allow the next government of Solomon Islands to take office with dignity and respect.
