Fiji Sun - - World News - RNZI

Ho­niara: Un­con­firmed re­ports from Solomon Is­lands say the In­fra­struc­ture Min­is­ter Jimmy Lusi­baea has de­cided to re­join govern­ment only days af­ter leav­ing it. Mr Lusi­baea re­signed last week amid dis­agree­ments over long-run­ning is­sues at the Solomon Is­lands Ports Au­thor­ity, which last week led to the sack­ing of its chief ex­ec­u­tive Colin Yow. But our correspondent in Ho­niara says govern­ment of­fi­cials say Mr Lusi­baea is be­ing brought back into the fold along with 12 other govern­ment MPs who had joined him in walk­ing out on govern­ment. It is un­der­stood one of the con­di­tions he has placed on re­as­sum­ing his port­fo­lio is for the en­tire Ports Au­thor­ity board to be re­placed next year.
