A new era has certainly started

There is a time for everything. That much is undeniable about life. There is a time for the sun to rise and a time to set just as day and night will come no matter what. Indeed there is a time for new beginnings, a time to close an old chapter and there are seasons for changes.

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, Re: Politics today Again the people have no choice but to put a majority of H.R.P.P in power that will never vote against the PM because of that pathetic election rule that allows 5 H.R.P.P people to run in one district.

Dear Editor Re: The laws of the land What laws are you talking about? There are no supreme laws you idiot. Only God is supreme and his laws only are supreme.

Dear Editor Re: Powerful P.M. If the P.M. has a majority he actually has more power than a president. This is what Tuilaepa fully understands and you PS Jeffrey do not.
