Foreigners influence in the Solomon Islands has threatened our sovereignty says Senior statesman and former Governor General-Sir Nathaniel Waena.
Sir Nathaniel made the statement following reports that foreign consultants have advised the Parliament to remove few provisions of the Provincial Government Act 1981
“I would like to advise the Parliarment that eight provinces have no legal teeth to bite because provisions to enact legislation to govern these provinces and policies were taken out by repealing the 1981 Act. All we have now is the 1997 Act where the current government wants to further reduce the effective involvement of the legitimately elected provincial governments.”
Sir Nathaniel believes, this is serious matter undermining a sovereign state and and the government needs to consider this with great responsibility.
