.Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 08/06/2017
A petition will be presented to His Majesty next week by the 2019 Sports Organizing Committee, the sporting community, school principals and members of the general public with the hope that Tonga will continue to host the games.
Lord Vaea, the Head of the Amateur and Olympic committee this is his final hope because the Prime minister never gave the council a chance to offer its assistance and alternative options.
He said, the petition is an indication to the government to acknowledge that there is big support for the Games to be held in Tonga.
Vaea added, they will be amazed at the amount of people supporting the petition that goes to the King.
He said it is an appeal to the king and they’re hoping for several thousand signatures.
