King signs Writ of Elections for November 16
NUKU’ALOFA-September 7: 4.35pm (Nuku’alofa Times): All interested candidates for the upcoming General Elections will need register their names in one of the local offices on September 27-28.
This will mean anyone overseas interested to stand as a candidate must be here in Tonga on the two days to register their interest.
His Majesty King Tupou VI issued the Writs of Election this week, proclaiming Tonga will go to the polls on November 16 after Parliament was dissolved last month.
That means all those who are now eligible to vote but have not been registered will need to register now.
The Electoral Commission has called for the nomination of candidates, who must register over two-days from 27-28 September at the Office of the Electoral Commission in Nuku’alofa, the Governor’s Offices in Ha’apai and Vava’u, and at the Offices of Government Representatives in Eua, Niuafo’ou and Niuatoputapu.
King Tupou VI called for the snap elections after he dissolved Parliament two weeks ago.
