Tonga needs all MPs working together: Dr Eke
NUKU’ALOFA-March 10: 9:10am(Nuku’alofa Times): Dr. Aisake Eke, who was dumped earlier this week from Cabinet, wants the country’s parliament to take a less adversarial approach to governing.
Dr ‘Aisake Eke was removed earlier this week from his Finance Minister’s post after he abstained in a no confidence vote against Prime Minister ‘Akilisi Pohiva.
The vote was defeated but Dr Eke was sacked from his post.
He said he had no grudges about his removal and expected it.
But he said he wanted the Tonga Legislature to learn to work together and this was something he would be aiming to achieve if he remains in politics.
He said the adversarial approach does not work for Tonga.
“The political agenda they use is a very divisive one. To segregate the Nobles from the People’s Representatives, to me, is not a healthy one,” he said.
“It is not one that is appropriate for Tonga, socially and economically and politically. So we have to get the unity and move forward. This is the only way you could make a stronger Tonga.”
