Tonga to elect new prime minister on december 29

    Tonga will elect its new Prime Minister for 2015-18 next week Monday 29 at 10am at the Parliament House in Nukuʻalofa.

    The new Prime Minister would be elected in a secret ballot by the 26 elected MPs.

    Chief Clerk for the House, Gloria Pōleʻo said: “After the secret ballot, the ballot papers will be collected into the ballot box and the meeting will adjourn to allow the ballots to be counted by the Chief Clerk of the Legislative Assembly and the Acting Auditor General in the presence of the Interim Speaker”.

    “If the result of the ballot gives a candidate a majority of votes (more than half of the votes), that candidate has won the election.

    “The Interim Speaker will report the result of the election to His Majesty before it is announced to the elected Representatives at the resumption of the meeting.

    “If the ballot does not provide a winning candidate (with majority of the votes), the meeting will adjourn to another day to conduct another secret ballot and the date and time for that meeting will be announced by the Interim Speaker”.
