Parliament meets tomorrow - first on business election of Speaker and Deputy Speaker

Finally, Parliament will now meet tomorrow, minus a motion of no confidence and any major dramas.

As usual in any vice regal opening of Parliament, the first  business will be the election of a Speaker of Parliament and a Deputy Speaker.

Tomorrow's election of Speaker will mark the end of Sir Peter Kenilorea's active participation in the politics of Solomon Islands. He will now retire from public life as of tomorrow, 8th September 2010.

The election of the Speakers will be followed by a 'Speech from the Throne" a convention provided to give an opportunity for the government spell out its future plan and policy framework.

The next big government business after all these formalitites is off course the Appropriation Bill which is the government's budget for the next 12 months.

We are all looking forward to how this new government will fare.
