The coalition government is expected to setup a policy coordinating committee as soon as possible.

While not giving a specific timeline on when the committee will be created, Deputy Prime Minister, Viliame Gavoka says it will include members of the People’s Alliance, National Federation Party and Social Democratic Liberal Party.

“We’re very determined to make this work and the goodwill that I have seen over the last few days are very encouraging and I see a lot of the policies of the three parties coming into form during our administration.”
