The Samoa government has further referred the petitions against legislation towards changing the side of the road people drive on to the bills committee.
This follows the Prime Minister, Tuila'epa Sa'ilele Malielegaoi, moving a motion in Parliament after the debate over a parliamentary committee report.
The prime minister says the concerns raised in the petitions will be further considered in the bills committee after the proposed road traffic legislation is tabled in the house for the first reading.
Meanwhile two former government ministers have spoken in Parliament against the change.
They are former Minister of Tourism and Trade and one of the two MPs representing the individual voters, Hans Joachim Keil, and former minister of Broadcasting and Telecommunication, Palusalue Fa'apo II.
