Tongans to learn tomorrow about recommended political reforms

8:02 pm on 5 November 2009

The recommendations for political reform developed by Tonga's Constitutional and Electoral Commission will be made public tomorrow.

The Commission, which was created by legislation a year ago, presented its report to King George Tupou 5th today.

The Commission had been directed to come up with proposals for reform to usher in greater democracy, ahead of elections expected in November next year.

It has been meeting since January.
