TONGATAPU number one people’s representative yesterday raises concern in the Legislative Assembly about the health condition of Tongatapu nine constituency’s representative.
‘Akilisi Pöhiva says voters in this electorate are gravely concern about Kaveinga Fa’anunu’s health condition.
Fa’anunu is believed to have been suffering from tongue cancer, a report is yet to be confirmed. Pohiva calls on the Honourable Minister of Health, ‘Uliti Uata to act upon the matter since he’s got authority to submit a medical report on the parliamentarian’s (Fa’anunu) health condition.
“The Honourable Minister should submit a medical report and if that proves he’s not physically fit to continue serving as a MP, then his electorate could consider electing another representative,” said Pohiva.
In response to Pohiva, Hon. Uata told the house a medical report will later submit to Parliament.
‘Akilisi also urges members of parliament to make a prompt decision on the matter.
