Isoaimo maintains stance on split

Kairuku-Hiri MP, Peter Isoaimo, maintains his stance to split his district in two.

Isoaimo said this during his address at the swearing in ceremony of the Provincial Assembly for the Open Members and Governor yesterday.

He said he will continue to push the agenda for the separation of his district and asked for the support of the Provincial Assembly.

He added, this must be the last term for a ‘Kairuku-Hiri’ titled MP, and the next election should have two separate seats.

Meanwhile, Isoaimo said Prime Minister Peter O’Neill gave assurances during the last parliament for the split to be looked at.
