Manele to look at expenditures over past 8 years

HONIARA, Solomon Islands (Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corporation, Jan. 6, 2015) – The Leader of Opposition and Member of Parliament for Kia Hograno Havulei Constituency, Jeremiah Manele has decided to audit all constituency funds for the last eight years.

A government statement today says Mr Manele made the decision recently, after his predecessor Hon. Selwyn Riumana lodged a petition against him for bribery allegations committed during the election last year.

Mr. Manele says a funds audit is important to indicate whether or not the constituency funds were rightfully used by Mr. Riumana.

The Opposition Leader adds starting on a clean slate is paramount for him, to bring about benefits and making a difference in the lives of his constituents.
