Opposition members joins Cabinet


A member of the opposition party, Sangster Saulala of the Tongan Democratic Party, has become the new Minister of Agriculture, Forestry, Fisheries and food.

He joins the government of Prime Minister Lord Tu’ivakano who faces a no confidence vote in the parliament, probably next week. The defection comes after the MP had consulted with his constituents and found that there was opposition to the no confidence vote.
