Tautua Samoa Party holds first members' meeting

2:00 pm on 16 July 2008

The newly formed Tautua Samoa party has chosen a select committee in its first members' meeting.

Twelve independent MPs have formed the new grouping that will be in the centre of the political spectrum.

The committee will consist of a number of lawyers.

However, the members are yet to decide if they will register the party and its members without naming the parliamentarians, or if they will register it as a company.

The MPs could lose their seats in parliament if they registered themselves as Tautua Samoa members.

A decision is expected within the next two weeks.
