10:53 am on 24 December 2015

The Solomons government says its numbers have been strengthened with two more opposition MPs joining it, lifting its numbers to 33 in the 50 seat parliament.

The government says the MP for Ranonga-Simbo, Charles Sigoto and South Vella Lavella's Lionel Alex have crossed the floor.

It says the numbers will give it the opportunity to pass critical legislation in the coming year that will need the support of two thirds of the MPs.
