In November 2013 the unofficial word was that Tonga’s 2014 general election would be in in November also.
The Prime Minister is likely to be briefed by Tonga’s electoral commission on the process before official announcements are made.
The Centre for Citizenship Education (CCE) stepped up consultations in the 4th qtr 2013 on what citizenship education measures were in place and might be put in place to support electors to participate in elections to chose their Parliamentarians to chose their Prime Minister.
CCE, with the support of the Commonwealth Foundation and others, has been in Tonga and New Zealand on activities in the Pacific Islands Citizenship Education Capacity Building Programme (PICE).
This website www.citizenshipeducation.net is being progressively redeveloped to support PICE programme activities.
