No Cabinet lineup yet
NUKU’ALOFA-January 3, 2018: 10.30am (Nuku’alofa Times): There is still no indication of who Prime Minister ‘Akilisi Pohiva has named in his Cabinet lineup.
Three weeks after being elected as PM. Mr Pohiva has still not named his Ministers.
At the same time many are watching with interest whether His Majesty King Tupou VI will accept him as Prime Minister, especially after having dissolved Mr Pohiva’s government in August.
As of this morning there is still no indication of who has been included in the Cabinet lineup.
But looking at the current interim make-up it could be that the same Members of Parliament will continue in their posts, with maybe two or three changes.
Interesting will be to see if women MPs Akosita Lavulavu and Losaline Maasi will be offered Cabinet posts.
There is also interest on whether PM Pohiva will also offer opposition MPs any Cabinet posting, especially to former Deputy Prime Minister Siaosi Sovaleni.
