Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 05/06/2020

For the first time, the nine noble’s representative in Parliament will have access to constituency funds as part of the Legislative Assembly’s vote for 2020/2021.

This was announced by the Lord Speaker of Parliament – Lord Fakafanua adding that there had been discussions with previous governments for the nobles to also establish their own office in their constituencies but there are still no funds available for this.

The Legislative Assembly’s vote includes 50 thousand pa’anga for each noble representative towards development projects in his constituencies.

Ha’apai #1 Noble representative has already prepared plans for development projects in constituency using the funds from this constituency grant.
