Tonga Attorney-General seeks legal advice on confidence vote
Attorney-General Neil Adsett has been called upon to advise on whether non-elected members of the Legislative Assembly may vote in the no confidence motion brought by the opposition Democratic party against Prime Minister Lord Tu’ivakano's administration, reported Radio New Zealand International.
Mr Adsett's counsel may have an impact on the outcome of the opposition's motion, which was delayed by four days by the Speaker Lord Lasike on Thursday 28 June.
The opposition claim the PM has lost the trust of the people as evidenced by a lack of control over his MPs and regular Cabinet reshuffles.
The Legislative Assembly resumed sitting today to debate the vote.
