The political infighting and instability in Solomon Islands are said to be having an adverse effect on the social and economic livelihood of the people of Choiseul and Western Provinces.

The Member of Parliament for North-west Choiseul, Clement Kengava, says the people of the Western region of Solomon Islands have now become victims of political tragedies.

He told the Solomon Broadcasting Corporation this is due to lack of long-term political stability in the country since independence.

Mr Kengava says there have been three major crisis that have contributed to political instability and causing continuous suffering to the people in the two provinces.
