13 September 2019
We are deeply saddened by the sudden passing of the late Hon. Samuela Ákilisi Pohiva, Prime Minister of Tonga in Auckland, New Zealand. The Legislative Assembly of Tonga wishes to express its deepest sympathies and offers heartfelt condolences to the Hon. Prime Minister’s family and his loved ones.
SOME parliamentarians have started their parliamentary annual visit to their respective electorates in 2019.
This annual program is an opportunity for the legislators to visit their constituencies to talk and to hear from villagers on issues affecting their daily lives. It is also to collect information on the urgent need they want Parliament to address.
Both Ha’apai MPs and also Tongatapu 5 constituency MPs last week began their annual visit.
Today, Ha’apai 13 MP Hon. Veivosa Taka and parliamentary supporting staff this morning visited the Ministry of Health and a public meeting at Muitoa at 6 pm today. Public meetings for Ha’ano, Pukotala and Fakakai for Ha’apai 13 electorates are being scheduled for next week.
Meanwhile, Ha’apai 12 MP, Mo’ale Finau and team are visiting Ha’ato’u and also government primary schools in Pangai later on today. They will conclude their program next Monday.
