Opposition leader Patrick Pruaitch, when commending Dr Baloiloi said his appointment was to ensure effective coordination and collaboration among the Opposition parties.
He said the Opposition parties have all embraced the appointment of Dr Baloiloi and are committed to work with him.
Meantime, Pruaitch said one of the priority undertakings the Opposition leaders will be taking is to address the ever-declining economic condition the country is facing.
Pruaitch made these remarks when announcing his shadow cabinet on Tuesday.
He said leaders must pull the economy out of life support, and restore and rehabilitate it to a stage where it can function normally again, without any excessive burden on the already distressed people.
