Peace comes from straight-line decisions

PREMIER of Malaita Province Peter Ramohia says in order to achieving lasting peace in Solomon Islands, there needs to be good control in decision making to strongly drive the nation’s peace building efforts.

Ramohia made the statement in his presentation on the outcome of the previously held Malaita Peace Dialogue during yesterday’s first day of the two-day National Peace Dialogue at the Heritage Park Hotel.

The Malaita Province Premier then added that resolutions the Malaita Provincial Assembly and Leaders came up with came in sub-heads; Land and Resources, Peacebuilding and Post Conflict Reconstruction, Leadership and Governance and Youth.

Ramohia also agreed with the Guadalcanal Premier Anthony Veke’s statement on the Customary Land Reform Bills as a way forward to opening more development and people inclusive as a way forward to peace and stability in the Solomon Islands.

He then strongly encouraged that the drive to achieving lasting peace should come from collaborative efforts in all levels of decision making.

Yesterday was the first day of a two-day National Peace Dialogue to discuss ways and means to sustain peace and stability in Solomon Islands.

The two-day national dialogue is jointly organized by the Office of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, the Ministry of National Unity, Reconciliation and Peace and the Ministry of Women, Youth, Children and Family Affairs.
