Samoan 2021 Election

Samoa has traditionally been one of the most stable countries in the Pacific, due in part to the 39 year run of the Human Rights Protection Party in government. Following the country’s April 9 election, Samoa’s hung parliament has prompted a constitutional crisis and a controversial decision to send the country back to voting booths on May 21. Eliorah Malifa speaks with Saui’a Louise Matai’a Milo, Dr Roannie Ng Shiu and Salā Dr George Carter to discuss the election and what issues have arisen through it.
