    I agree but first in this order for focus:

    1) COVID fight…..all together now!
    2) Economy and local content policies
    3) Reconciliation and comfort for the 45% that voted for Coalition.

    The reason focus on reconciliation needs to wait is to allow the PNC to get their Petition in order and try and locate their SOPS and the GECOM SOPS and the documents that Mingo ordered out of the boxes. Because you cannot get out of a hole you dug for yourself until you stop digging. Or better yet another good start to reconciliation would be certain persons standing up and admitting the whole “irregularities” ting had no basis in facts!
