Tautua Samoa leader expresses grave concern
The leader of the Tautua Samoa Party, Palusalue Fa’apo II, has expressed concerns about the prestige and respect accorded to the position of the Head of State.
Speaking during a press conference yesterday, he said he is worried about the future of the position following the passing of the Constitution Amendment Bill (No.2) by Parliament earlier this week.
The law has stripped Members of the Legislative Assembly of their power to nominate and vote for the Head of State (H.O.S).
Instead, the government of the day will nominate a person to be appointed the Head of State.
