From , 6:03 am on 9 November 2017

Tonga's Supervisor of Elections says all is ready for the nation to go to a vote next week.

When elections were called a year early following August's dissolution of Parliament, Pita Vuki, was concerned with the short time available to update the roll.

However he now says the Electoral Commission has been able to do just that, adding 8,000 new voters to the roll.

Mr Vuki told Koro Vaka'uta everything is ready.
