The Tongan Olympic Committee says the government's decision to withdraw its support for hosting the 2019 Pacific Games doesn't add up.

More than 40 delegates, representing 17 sports, discussed the matter at a Special General Meeting earlier this week.

The Secretary General of TASANOC, Takitoa Taumoepeau, told Vinnie Wylie they remain hopeful the government will change its mind.
