Tora named Police Minister in Solomon Islands

7:36 pm on 31 August 2010

Solomon Islands MP James Tora has been sworn-in as the Minister for Police, National Security and Correctional Services.

This means that all 24 ministerial posts in the new Danny Philip led Government have now been filled.

Mr Tora was Police Minister in the previous administration of Dr Derek Sikua.

He has called for the Government to settle down and start work because the people won't wait while their MPs play politics.

Earlier this week there had been signs the new government might fracture with local reports that Snyder Rini had sided with the Opposition, but on Monday afternoon he was sworn in as Planning Minister.
