Changes in Military Command


The Leader of the Opposition will make a substantive statement once she has had the opportunity to be fully briefed on the details surrounding the sudden changes in the Military leadership.

The reasons behind the Commander Mosese Tikoitoga’s decision to resign his command to take up a Diplomatic posting will be best explained by the Commander Tikoitoga himself.

In so far as the acting appointment of Viliame Naupoto is concerned, the Opposition nominees on the Constitutional Officers Commission agreed with Government members at their previous meeting to allow the Commission Chairman to make acting appointments for up to 3 months and therefore Mr Naupoto’s acting appointment is in order.
