Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 12/06/2019
Speaker of Parliament Lord Fakafanua this morning said, it is legal and right – when the deputy speaker – Lord Tu’ilakepa performs the duty of the speaker when he is absent or not presiding in a meeting of the Assembly.
He made the clarification as members of the public are enquiring the decisions made by the Deputy Speaker when he’s the Acting Speaker of Parliament.
Following the explanation from the Speaker, the house resumed its deliberations in the whole House Committee chaired by Ha’apai 13 MP Veivosa Taka.
