Disarray in Tonga’s Democratic Party revealed


With national elections less than a year away, Tonga’s Democratic Party is in disarray after party leader ‘Akilisi Pohiva’s newspaper Kele’a reported what it said was a plot by several Democratic MPs to support Dr Sitiveni Halapua rather than Pohiva as the party’s candidate for the Prime Minister in 2012.

The newspaper claimed that three Democratic Party members, including People’s Representatives Semisi Tapueluelu and Sione Taione planned in 2012 to replace him with fellow parliamentarian Dr Sitiveni Halapua.
