2:31 pm on 18 February 2015

The Samoan opposition leader, Palusalue Faapo II, has apologised in Parliament after being suspended on the final day of the last parliamentary session.

The Tautua party leader was suspended after he walked into the house and took to the floor without the speaker's approval.

The Minister of Works and Infrastructure, Manu'alesagalala Enokati Posala, addressed parliament and apologised on behalf of Palusalue.

The speaker accepted Palusalue's apology, but he warned all MPs to obey the standing orders.
