Tonga should have a new Prime Minister Designate by Monday or Tuesday next week. But the intense political competition going on as we are heading for the Second Round of our 2010 Parliamentary Election is that, suddenly, the contest is between a Political Party and a bloc of elected members of parliament. The outcome of this encounter in a country that has no laws to regulate parties is that one group will have a majority in Parliament to form a majority government and because of that, will be able to install a dictator into power.
