Less than a week out from Tonga's snap election and the 86 candidates are flooding the airwaves, newspapers and streets with their messages.

The election comes a year earlier than scheduled because of August's dissolution of parliament.

The scenario has led to a few new names, and some familiar ones, trying to get into the House.
