Nomination opens tomorrow (Wednesday) in the provincial headquarters (HQ), the text concluded.

The Election Nomination fees are, Parliament – $5000, Provincial- $2500, and Honiara City Council – $2500, the SIEC announced in another text message earlier.

This will be the first time that the national, provincial (most provinces) and the Honiara City Election will be held together since independence.

The NGE should have taken place last year but it was delayed for seven months with the passage of a constitutional amendment allowing the government to host the Pacific Games in December last year.
