By-election to be held in Samoa electorate

6:50 am on 23 June 2014

A by-election will be held in Samoa's Gagaifomauga number one electorate following the death of two-term MP, Tuilo'a Anitele'a Tuilo'a, last week.

Tuilo'a, who was the associate minister of womens affairs, was buried on Savaii on Saturday.

Both the governing Human Rights Protection Party and the opposition Tautua Samoa Party have announced they will be standing candidates.
