Kua: PM Must Resign

Sacked Attorney General, Kerenga Kua, is calling on Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill to resign.

He says Mr O’Neill has disgraced the office of the Prime Minister with decisions as of late.


This includes the disbanding of Taskforce Sweep, the forced departing of senior police officers, Sir Toami Kulunga, and Simon Kauba, the installing of Geoffrey Vaki as Police commissioner, and creating a new commission of inquiry to be headed by retired judge, Justice Warwick Andrews.


The comments come after Mr Kua had a one on one meeting with the Prime Minister at 3pm yesterday, in which the PM officially relayed reasons of Mr Kua’s sacking as Attorney General.


Before addressing the media, Mr Kerenga Kua made a disclaimer, stating all views expressed, were his and not of his National Alliance Party.


He said he had consulted with his party before coming out publicly, and that his party respected his decision.


He said his meeting with the Prime Minister was cordial and frank. He said the sacking had nothing to do with his performance, which the PM ranked amongst the top four of his ministers.


The two main reasons given were, for not wanting to amend section 145 of the constitution to further restrict the rights of members of parliament to move a motion of no confidence, to restrict the nomination of an alternative candidate as PM to the ruling party.


The second reason, being for allegedly instructing the solicitor general to go against the interest of the Prime Minister.


He said the amendments would make it almost impossible for a vote of no confidence, which would then deem the opposition useless. Thus crumbling the whole purpose of a democracy and making an environment ideal for a dictatorship.


He said the Prime Minister must resign before next week Tuesday, when parliament sits. For the sake of the law and integrity of the Prime Minister’s office, he called on retired Judge, Warwick Andrew not to agree to the inquiry.


He said the Prime Minister in the process of trying to pervert the course of justice, has just created another set of criminal offences. He said it is unbecoming of a Prime Minister to accuse the Police and Judiciary of being compromised, that the allegations were scandalous.


He is calling on the nation to rise up, to take a stand and argue that stance, because once the people move, parliament moves.
