Solomon Islands poised for historic election

From , 5:02 am on 19 February 2019

On the third of April Solomon Islanders will go to the polls to elect their representatives for the country's 11th parliament.

Since the tensions at the turn of the century, elections have been held in relative security brought by the regional assistance mission known as RAMSI.

The next polls are the first since RAMSI left in 2017.
