HONIARA, Solomon Islands (August 11, 1998 - PACNEWS/Tuqiri)---The Solomon Islands Council of Trade Unions (SICTU) is concerned about the political instability caused by the frequent shift of political allegiance of the country's Members of Parliament.

Trade Union officials have called on Solomon Island Parliamentarians to be mature and responsible at a time when the country is experiencing hardship.

The SICTU executive says one of the main causes of the country's economic problems has been continuing political instability since the Solomon Islands gained its independence 20 years ago.

The SICTU says the instability has been the result of transferred allegiances, and MPs misunderstanding that a change of government is not a "quick-fix" solution politically or economically.

In making the statement, the Council of Trade Unions reaffirmed its support for the current Government of Prime Minister Bartholomew Ulufa'alu.
