Beijing ‘willing to help’ Sogavare extend his term in office

ASPI’s Michael Shoebridge says Solomon Islands Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare wants to stay in power through “whatever means he has”.

Mr Shoebridge said each time he has come to power it has been through “political turmoil”.

“Like Xi Jinping, he wants to extend his term in office, and Beijing is willing to help,” he told Sky News host Andrew Bolt.

“So for personal power reasons, he’s opening his country up to China and distancing it from us.”
