THE Legislative Assembly of Tonga has reverted to four days sitting week. This was approved on Friday 17th of June. Prior to the change, the House was sitting for three days, which was Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. This was aimed at allowing time for Ministers to attend Cabinet and Privy Council meetings, which were held on Wednesdays and Fridays respectively.
However since Privy Council is no longer a part of the Executive, a decision was made to also include Wednesdays in the sitting days as Cabinet meetings are held on Fridays.
The House will sit from 10 am to 12pm and then from 2 pm to 4pm, Monday to Thursday.
