The Sustainable Nation-Building Party (Tongan: Paati Langafonua Tu'uloa) is a political party in Tonga. It was launched on August 4, 2007 in Auckland, New Zealand.[1]

The party's president is Sione Fonua, an Auckland-based lawyer. He plans to move to Tonga before the 2008 elections.[2]

The party ran four candidates in the 2010 elections,[3] but did not win any seats. It intends to recruit more members and candidates and contest the next elections in 2014.[4]
