Tonga: Homage to the King and Democracy in Tonga

Categories: Oceania, Governance

Wendy at Babasiga blog pays homage [1] to the King of Tonga Taufa'ahau Tupou IV [2]. The ailing King died on Sunday. In the comment, the blogger says “The Tongan people are in a quandery because they want to show respect for tradition but at the same time many want a fair go for ordinary people. The democracy movement there is persisting and eventually there will be a fairer outcome.”
