Who is your pick for new Deputy Prime Minister?

Marryann Tusa, 41, Vailele

I know there is someone brave to take on this new role in the future. I am not sure about anyone to replace her but God will choose the person who is smart and qualified to take the role.

Ula Samuelu, 52, Faleasiu

I know that Papali'i Niko Lee Hang is the one to take the role of Deputy Prime Minister. He has been in the Government for a very long time. He is also a person who knows a lot about what to do in the Government for the development of our country. He understands what to do because he has been in the Government for a long time.

Faatalatala Viiga, 58, Vaiala

The people who are great for the role are not in the Government anymore but there is one person that is still in the Government, who is Papali'i Niko Lee Hang. I think he is the right person for the role. I choose him because he is the former Minister of Finance and he is an honest person. The people of our country did not complain about the way the money was distributed for many projects in the country. All finance details are clear every year. He should be the Deputy Prime Minister.

Paulo Tauuma, 65, Vaiala

My choice is Papali'i Niko Lee Hang, that is my opinion. I choose him because Niko Lee Hang explains all the financial details clearly and he also explains everything to the country.

Seiuli Ati, 39, Toamua

What I know is that there would be a new Deputy Prime Minister once the elections are finished. I don't know if there is anyone in the Parliament right now who would be good enough for the role. We should look at their qualifications if they are able to take the role. I don't think any of these people could take the role, because what I think is that they should be old. What I mean is not old as in the age of the person but old meaning they have been in the Government for a long time.

Tala Fetuoso, 45, Laulii

I recently heard that Fiame Naomi Mataafa had recently resigned. I don't really know any other people qualified for the role. I am not sure about any decision because I don't watch TV a lot. I was surprised to hear that Fiame Naomi Mataafa resigned.
