THE regional workshop for Pacific Parliaments in Nuku’alofa last week agreed that regional Parliaments Tonga included should be able to enact gender equality legislation or review existing laws so that they do not discriminate against women.
DEMOCRACY is founded on the participation of both men and women in political, economic and social spheres in society, according to the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) spokesperson.
THE Whole House Committee has rejected Tongatapu 5 Private Bill for the Prime Minister to be elected by the people.
“THE proposed amendment to Clause 50A of the Constitution of Tonga is to enable voters to elect the Prime Minister,” according to Tongatapu 5 MP.
TONGATAPU 2 MP today thanks the members of the Legislative Assembly for the special programme in Parliament to greet the Ma’a Tonga last Thursday.
