Policy, budget lures MPs

GOVERNMENT yesterday claimed four more members of parliaments (MPs) from the Opposition group are expected to the Danny Philip-led National Coalition for Rural Advancement (NCRA) government.

This was revealed yesterday after the Government Caucus formally welcomed three former Opposition MPs.

“Four more opposition MPs are expected to join the Government team ahead of the March 28 budget session,’ the government statement said.

The three MPs which switched to the government were West Guadalcanal MP Moses Garu, MP for Savo Russells Dickson Mua and East Makira MP Alfred Ghiro.

Their inclusion in the government had now strengthened the government side.

They were formally welcomed to their first Caucus meeting at the Cabinet chamber.

The government statement quoted the three MPs as saying their move to the NCRA government stems from a common believe in the upcoming national budget and the policies of the coalition.

“They believed these policies will have direct impact on their constituencies and it is proper to join the government to push its reform and development agenda forward,” the statement said.
Prime Minister Philip said the NCRA government’s door is open to any MP who wishes to be part of the Government’s team.
