2010 Solomon Islands general election

A general election was held in Solomon Islands on 4 August 2010.[1][2] In May 2010, Prime Minister Derek Sikua announced that the election would be held on 4 August;[3] however, this announcement was deemed to be premature, as only the Governor General has the authority to announce the election date upon the advice of the Electoral Commission.[4] In the end, this date was used, however.
