Double Standards from Dom Post?
Nine of the 26 seats in Tonga’s parliament are still reserved for the nobility. There should not be any
Now why is it bad for Tonga to have 9 seats reserved for the nobility, when in NZ we have race based seats. Where is the Dom Post sounding off about the deplorable fact that we have race based seats in Parliament and increasingly in local government. Why is it bad for one segment of Tongan society to have preference, but not in NZ?
Somehow we in NZ seem happy to tell our Pacific neighbours what is and is not acceptable, whilst increasingly giving preference to one segment of our multi-ethnic society in NZ itself.
