DEATH OF THE HON SAMUELA ‘AKILISI POHIVA
PAT CONROY MP
Federal Labor offers its condolences to the people of Tonga on the passing of Tongan Prime Minister Mr Samuela ‘Akilisi Pohiva this week.
 
It is a sad occasion for the people of Tonga and, I am sure, the Tongan community here in Australia as well.
 
Our thoughts are with them.
 
Mr Pohiva was a tireless advocate for government reform and a passionate supporter of the Pacific’s interests on climate change.
 
He was also good friend to Australia.
 
May he rest in peace.
