The Supreme Court has pointed out in its judgement that Tuitogamanaia Dr. Peniamina Leavai not rendering compulsory service to the church through a matafale under his own matai title led to his disqualification as a candidate. 

 The dispute over Tuitoga’s religious monotaga (compulsory service) was the key question that the Court scrutinised in the petition filed by Fuiono Tenina Crichton against Tuitoga.
