Tonga to form Pacific Games Organizing Committee


A six-member Tonga Pacific Games Organizing Committee, including a Chief Executive Officer, is expected to be confirmed by the end of this month, said Lopeti Senituli the CEO of the Ministry of Internal Affairs on June 6.

When the Pacific Games Council awarded Tonga the right to host the 2019 Pacific Games in October last year, Tonga was obligated to establish an Organizing Committee.

Government then submitted a Pacific Games Organization Bill 2013 to establish the organizational structure of the Tonga Pacific Games Organizing Committee as a statutory corporation with separate legal entity, as required by the Pacific Games Council.
