The Speaker should exercise his right

Dear Editor,

The Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries La’aulialemalietoa Leuatea Polataivao Fosi Schmidt has done partly right in resigning from being a Government Minister but it’s not right at all in not resigning full time from Parliament.

How can he remain as a Faipule when he has been accused of serious offences? 

E ogaoga ma mamafatu moliaga.

He should vacate the Government/Parliament premises.

I trust the Speaker of the House, Afioga Toleafoa Faafisi Toleafoa would exercise the Speaker’s power in ordering Laaulialemalietoa Leuatea Polataivao Fosi Schmidt to resign from Parliament.

May I use this space to ask the Speaker to exercise his rightful duty/his power of conviction to the Independent State and the People of Samoa to do right.

Ia manuia lau silasila ma le faitau Samoa o le Aomamala,


Va’a F Aga
