Tonga's election office appeals on candidate nomination to be urgently heard

The Tongan Appeal Court will urgently hear an appeal by the Supervisor and Chairman of Tonga’s Electoral Commission against a judgment to nominate Sione Tupouniua after the nomination of candidates closed on Friday,  October 24 at 3pm.

Tupouniua had his nomination application rejected after he arrived late at the Election Office.

He appealed the Election Office’s decision and the Supreme Court in Nuku’alofa on November 10 upheld his appeal and ordered the Election Office to process Tupouniua’s nomination.

The Election Office did not agree with the Supreme Court’s judgement against its decision and on November 12 Tonga’s Acting Attorney General ‘Aminiasi Kefu lodged an appeal for the Election Office.

Tonga’s general election will be held on November 27.
