It seems that the former CNURA camp has consolidated its position and now claims to have the support of 30 MPs, whilst the other camps appear to be splintering.
There may now be four or even five separate camps. The RDP has reportedly broken with the other members of the Pacific Casino group (OUR party and the DDP) and established itself at Red Mansion Hotel. And several new MPs including Namson Tran, Jimmy Rasta Lusibaea and possibly some from Western Province have also reportedly established their own camp.
Derick Manu’ari has provided a good overview of the latest developments – check out his blog.
Finally, for those who are curious about the new (or perhaps not-so-new) Independent Democratic Party, which is based at Honiara Hotel, its party secretary Leonard Kaitu’u attempted to set the record straight in a letter to the editor that also appeared on Friday 13th.
