An activist working with Tonga's Democrats says this year's election is one of the calmest in memory.
The country goes to the polls on Thursday with campaigning to stop at 9 am on Wednesday.
There are 105 candidates after two disqualifications in the past week - one on the residency clause and the other for being a late nomination.
Publisher Kalafi Moala says he has observed 8 elections in Tonga and the lead up to this poll is among the most peaceful he has experienced.
He is predicting the Tongatapu No 3 seat relinquished by Sitiveni Halapua to be the most hotly contested.
"That is where a long experienced politician like Clive Edwards is running from. There is a businessman who owns the domestic airline is running from, a young man - government CEO is running from. Mele Amanaki, who is a woman activist. So I would say probably of all the seats, in all of Tonga, Tongatapu No 3 is the hottest contested one."
