New cabinet, 2011[edit]

There is a new cabinet, but I don't have time to update this page, my apologies. Second problem: the source I have for this information is "Matangi Tonga" which is an online newspaper that only allows free access to their articles for a week, i.e. this article won't be viewable as a reference a week from now. I'm not sure what we do to get around this.

I've copied the important bits below:

"The seven Cabinet Ministers who were nominated by the Prime Minister include three Noble's Representatives and four People's Representatives. They are all men: -

Lord Tu'ivakano - Prime Minister, also responsible for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Defence; and Communication and Information.

Samiu Vaipulu - Deputy Prime Minister, responsible for the Ministry of Justice; and the Ministry of Transport.

Sunia Fili - Minister of Finance.

Fe'ao Vakata - Minister for Technical Training, Youth and Sports.

Dr Viliami Latu - Minister of Police, Prisons and Fire Services.

Lord Vaea - Minister of Agriculture, Food and Fisheries.

Lord Ma'afu - Minister of Lands, Survey, Natural Resources, Environment and Climatic Change."


"The Prime Minister's additional five nominees that are yet to be appointed by the King are:

'Akilisi Pohiva - nominee Minister of Health;

'Isileli Pulu - nominee Minister of Tourism;

Lisiate 'Akolo - nominee Minister of Labour, Commerce and Industries;

'Ana Taufe'ulungaki - nominee Minister of Education; and

Clive Edwards - nominee Minister for Public Enterprises and Revenue Collection."

Thanks! I've added the new Cabinet, based on this source (which will also be unavailable in a few days). Aridd (talk) 20:16, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

new cabinet, July 2012[edit]

Once again, I've found a new cabinet but don't have time to re-do this page. They also restructured several of the ministries.

Thanks. That's not the latest, though; as I indicated in the article some time ago, there was another change on 13 July. Aridd (talk) 17:52, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
