Letters to the Editor
Letters are one of the most important parts of the paper because this is where the community has a chance to have its say. All letters to the editor received will generally be published, provided they are not defamatory or are covering exactly the same ground by the same writer.
Non du plume are acceptable, but the name, address and contact details must be provided to the editor.

Well, well! Following the ‘breaking news’ announcement on CITV last week (which was apparently also revealed earlier during the CI Radio 6pm news session), the QR Tom Marsters has dissolved parliament (as advised by PM Puna to His Excellency of course), with the date of the 2018 election set as Thursday, June 14.
Wilkie Rasmussen’s CINews article from last Tuesday regarding the state of the Cook Islands justice system’s obvious prejudice, which clearly favours the ‘elite’ within our society (as also alluded to by Kata’s ‘Ministry of Injustice’ cartoon in Wednesday’s paper, which was also very much spot on!), really leaves a sour taste in my mouth, as it should do for all of us.

Teina Bishop’s ideas on electoral reform (CI News April 9) are a re-run of what he said several years ago, and are as devious now as they were then.
