Parliament moved again

Parliament convened at the Tui Atua Tupu Tamasese Efi Building in Sogi, yesterday, for its first Parliament session of 2019. 

This is to allow renovations of the gymnasium at Tuana’imato, which Parliament had been using as their temporary headquarters, in preparation for the Pacific Games in July.

All this is to await the completion of the Maota Fono at Mulinu’u, which is currently in its final stages.

When it will be officially open could not be ascertained at press time. 

Attempts to get a comment from the Legislative Assembly were not successful.

The design and construction of the new Maota Fono incorporates traditional Samoan architecture and modern building technology. 

The building has been designed by a consultant team led by Manteena Australia and is being constructed by Craig Construction Limited. 

Contractors working on the building have previously told the Samoa Observer it was supposed to have been finished in May 2018.
