Papua New Guinea’s Organic Law on Integrity of Political Parties and Candidates has attracted Solomon Islands to learn from it.
Solomon Island’s Political Parties Commission is here on a fact finding mission to understand how PNG has developed its party system.
This finding will help PNG’s neighbor to make changes to its Political Party Integrity Act.
Solomon Islands parliament is expecting to table the amended law by June 2016.
The delegation aims to see how PNG’s Integrity of Political Parties and Candidates Commission operates and also to analyse where changes can be made in its current political party system.
The Solomon Islands Government has approved for a review to its Political Party Integrity Act and has tasked the commission to review the law.
Apart from having consultations with the counterpart office in PNG, the visitors will also be meeting with other important PNG government agencies as part of their fact finding mission.
