Samoa PM Statement

The New Prime Minister of Samoa has issued her first ever statement saying the country’s integrity and the people’s confidence in the systems of government must be restored.

Fiame Naomi Mata’afa’s election as the first woman PM marked a historical shift in regional politics.

But her election triggered strong resistance from the incumbent administration who locked the courts and parliament to prevent the swearing in ceremony of the new cabinet.

In response, the new MPs held parliament outdoors within the parliament house precinct and proceeded to swear in the speaker, deputy speaker, and the new Prime Minister.
