Solomon Islands Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare's government wants to delay election due to Pacific Games | ABC News AU |

The Prime Minister's office said in July that Solomon Islands did not have the resources to host the Pacific Games and hold an election in 2023.

Solomon Islands Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare's government has said it wants to extend parliament until after it hosts the Pacific Games in November 2023, for which China has donated a stadium and other sporting venues that are being built by Chinese companies.

Australia will be the second largest contributor to the games, after Pacific Minister Pat Conroy announced in Solomon Islands that Australia would contribute almost $17 million towards the landmark event.
