His Majesty King Tupou VI will close the doors on Parliament this morning after a 10-day sitting since March 5.

The closing was scheduled after the Speaker Lord Fakafanua announced the parliamentary sittings last month.

“The Legislative Assembly of Tonga’s current sitting will conclude on Thursday 15 March 2018 with a Soft Closing ceremony 10:30am,” a statement from the Office of the Legislative Assembly said.

“His Majesty, the King, has commissioned three Nobles of the Realm, Lord Vaea, Lord Tu‘iha‘ateiho and Lord Luani, to deliver the Speech from the Throne.

“The Legislative Assembly of Tonga opened on the 11 January 2018.

The Soft Closing ceremony on Thursday will be the first held at the Legislative Assembly’s temporary location in Tofoa.”
