From , 5:05 am on 10 February 2015

In an historic move the king of Tonga has appointed a commoner to the position of Governor of Ha'apai for the first time. Mo'ale Finau missed out in a seat in parliament by just 4 votes in last year's elections but says he is honoured to have now been given the new post.
