EU to support Solomons election

2:29 pm on 11 March 2010

The European Union has pledged to provide support for the upcoming election in Solomon Islands.

The commitment was made during a recent dialogue between the Prime Minister, Dr Derek Sikua, and EU officials in Brussels.

The secretary to the Prime Minister and Cabinet, Jerry Manele, says the EU is willing to send an expert mission to monitor the electoral process.

The date for the election is yet to be set but a media release from the Prime Minister's office suggests the poll is most likely to be held in June.
