The Tonga Rugby Union (TRU) will change its constitution to allow the Prime Minister of the country to automatically become president of the national body.
TRU Interim Chair Feʻao Vunipola said the amendments will be made in a special general meeting tomorrow Wednesday 11.
The board of directors along with World Rugby will still responsible for the election of the chairperson and assistant chairperson of the union, he said.
Kaniva News understands the changes were made to allow for smoother running of the organisation.
Last month World Rugby met with TRU and the Tongan government in Nukuʻalofa to discuss the future of the union in a meeting described by the international body as “positive and constructive”.
It followed with the election of the new headcoach for the ʻIkale Tahi last week, Toutai Kefu.
