Samoa election: Political deadlock still not broken

From Morning Report, 6:47 am on 23 April 2021

A political deadlock in Samoa after the recent general election is continuing without a resolution.

Two political parties - newcomer Faatuatua I le Atua Samoa ua Tasi, or FAST, and rival HRRP - both hold 26 seats.

On Thursday the FAST party was forced to withdraw a Supreme Court challenge that it had filed against a candidate from the HRRP.
