Samoa's Deputy Opposition leader, Asiata Dr Saleimoa Vaai, hopes that a report from the Inter-Parliamentary Union will resolve a dispute that saw him suspended from parliament without pay.
The action against Asiata came after he made a complaint to the IPU over parliamentary practices that he said involved the Prime Minister, the Speaker and the Clerk of the House.
The IPU found it alarming that Asiata had been found in breach of parliamentary privilege basically for contacting the IPU on behalf of his political party.
The Legislative Assembly's Privileges and Ethics Committee is due to consider the report at its meeting in November and Asiata is confident they will follow the recommendations:
"We have people here of integrity who will accept this as an independent ruling and comply accordingly"
