King gives direction to conduct election

His Majesty King Tupou VI has given the green light for this year’s General Election.

King Tupou VI has signed the writ directing the Electoral Commission to conduct the General Election on 27 November 2014.

This is the formal authority to run the 2014 election, and enables candidate nominations to open on Thursday 23 and Friday 24 October 2014 from 10am until 3pm.

The writ sets out key constitutional steps in the election process, the dates for candidate nominations to close, election day and the date the writ must be returned showing the successful electorate candidates.

“It is important that all nomination documents are completed by the candidate considering the time available for the registration process to take place”, said Tonga’s Supervisor of Elections, Pita Vuki.
