Caucus Leader Disputes Post
The leader of the government caucus Hon Billy Talagi has disputed Tala Niue’s story on the late Speaker of the Assembly Ahohiva Levi. In that story, some of the family had claimed that Levi had no prior warning that he had lost the confidence of the Talagi camp and that he was to be removed as the Speaker.
Billy Talagi has now disputed that claim and has stated on social media that he did give prior warning to Ahohiva Levi. Further, with regard to the procedures of swearing in members and electing a new Speaker, the House was doing no more than following the Niue Constitution and the Niue Assembly Standing Orders.
