About our Solomon Islands Politics news

Latest news on Solomon Islands politics, with coverage on elections, political parties, policy changes and key issues such as political instability.

Solomon Islands governments are characterised by weak political parties and highly unstable parliamentary coalitions. They are subject to frequent votes of no confidence, with government leadership and cabinet changes occurring frequently as a result.

Historically, prominent political parties in Solomon Islands have included the Democratic Alliance Party (DAP), Solomon Islands People's Democratic Coalition (SIPDC), and the Solomon Islands United Party (SIUP). However, political affiliations often shift, with alliances formed based on personal, regional, or ethnic interests rather than strict party lines.

The monarch serves as the head of state of the Solomon Islands, represented by the Governor-General, currently held by David Vunagi. The Prime Minister, elected by Parliament, is currently Jeremiah Manele, leader of the OUR Party, following the 2024 general election.

For political scientists, analysts, and those interested in South Pacific politics, NewsNow's feed on Solomon Islands politics is an essential tool. We gather the latest news, expert opinions, and thorough reports from trusted sources, providing a nuanced and well-informed perspective on politics in Solomon Islands.
