    Nuku'alofa, Tonga
    : The eight members of parliament who forced the Tongan Legislature to close this week changed their minds yesterday afternoon, and now, in an abrupt turnaround, they want the House to reopen, fearing that they have given the government a free-rein on the new Budget. Withdrawal is not going to be easy or cheap for the plaintiffs who, after claiming that the opening of Parliament on June 1 was illegal, have applied to the Supreme Court for their Civil Case, to be “discontinued”.

    : The leaders of a protest march by about 1000 people after the opening of the Tongan Legislature on June 1 have been charged an offence after they allegedly refused to obey police instructions during the march. The President and the Secretary of the People’s Democratic Party, Teisina Fuko and Semisi Tapueluelu, and 30 other protesters pleaded not guilty to a charge of “interferring with the course of Justice,” in a Nuku’alofa Police Magistrate’s Court this morning, June 13.

    Editor,

    As the Methodist hierarchy sit down to confer and consume over the next
    week or so, I'’m asking the economists in our midst for a quick summation
    of this annual activity from the point of view of the event'’s impact on
    our economy and how it contributes or otherwise to Tonga'’s economic
    growth and well-being.
