The 2019 General Fono sees a number of changes as Atafu takes over the seat of government. Stanley Lopa
was sworn-in as the General Fono Chair for 2019 with Sakaria Sakaio as Deputy Chair.
Two new parliamentary delegates were sworn-in, both from Atafu.
Mr Teloloma Samasoni takes over from Mr Mika Kalolo who has taken up the post of Director, Office of
Atafu Taupulega, and Mr Tulano Toloa, a USP lecturer in place of Mr Seluka Enosa.
For Nukunonu, a late change sees Mr Sefo Tuia continue in place of Mr Salesio Lui, a role he took up at the
Sixth Session of the General Fono at Fakaofo, November 2018. The same also for Fakaofo where Danny
Falesiu continues in the place of Talasilia Sosene.
Delegates are debating the Mid Term Review of the budget today.
