SOLOMONS AG RESIGNS
Quoting the Solomon Star newspaper – 14 August 2018
“THE Attorney General James Apaniai has already submitted his resignation to the Judicial and Legal services Commission by letter.
“Dated 31st July 2018, his three months resignation period will lapse on the 31st of October 2018.
“Prime Minister Rick Hou announced it on the floor of the parliament last Friday, when he was responding to the questions raised by the Leader of the Opposition, Manasseh Maelanga, on the Attorney General’s Political Statements on Social Media.
“Mr Maelanga asked the Prime Minister to explain why the Attorney General has been making political statements on social media; expressing negative views on the draft Federal Constitution, and accusing legislators of being responsible for corrupting the system.
“After consulting the AG on this matter, Prime Minister Hou said that the AG’s comments were merely his contribution on the topic.
“He further stated that there are nothing more than his personal suggestion to find a good solution to a system which in his view is an expensive system.
“The drafting of the federal constitution is still in progress.”
