While presenting the agreement, the Lesotho's Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Lesotho, Dr. Pakalitha Mosisili, said some of the objectives of the agreement are to restore the national peace and stability, which threatened Lesotho's development growth and also to address issues of development.

He added that some of the areas of work they want to prioritize include reducing poverty, creating employment, fostering economic growth and to address the needs of the vulnerable groups.

In his presentation, he also touched on issues of coalition management where he said all the parties have agreed to work collaboratively and added that each partner has access to other ministries and they will receive regular briefings on matters of interest. He also said that they will convene meetings on a monthly basis to discuss programmes to implement and check on progress in order to ensure that all partners are well informed and all the parties are at par with each other, and they are highly committed.
