Clerk of Parliament

Suspended Parlt clerk reinstated

Speaker of the National Parliament, Job Pomat, officially welcomed Konivoro today.

Konivoro was suspended by NEC on the 14 of August 2014 and referred to the Chief Justice to appoint Rights Tribunal.

Chief Justice Sir Salamo Injia appointed the Tribunal consisting of three judges in Derek Hartshorn, Sir Kina Bona and late Justice Martin Ipang.

The tribunal found the Clerk guilty on 3 counts of misbehaviour and recommended to NEC to remove him as a Constitutional Office Holder.

Suspended Parliament Clerk allowed review

 The recommendation of the Leadership Tribunal consisting of Justices Derek Hartshorn, Martin Ipang and Sir Kina Bona dated Dec 15,2016 has been temporarily halted pending the substantive review.

Justice Harold Terrence Foulds on Tuesday granted leave for Konivaro to file for a judicial review against the recommendation of the Tribunal.

The National Court was satisfied Konivaro had sufficient interest, filed his case within a reasonable time, had an arguable case and exhausted all remedies at the time his application was filed.
