Taxpayers in Vava’u 15 electorate wanted immediate actions on government’s promised development programmes for their villages and towns, Vava’u 15 Independent Candidate Kulufeinga ‘Anisi Bloomfield said.

The government had plan to assist the electorate in education, fishing and agriculture and the money was said to have been paid out through Tonga Development Bank.

Bloomfield said the people were still waiting for it.

The constituents also wanted to put projects that had been discussed and planned for the electorate into effects.

Bloomfield said while he was campaigning for next week’s snap election people raised with him these projects describing them as of “utmost significance.”

They wanted the Tongan government to help fund various local groups which had initiatives for the community, he said.

The constituents wanted to have an inter-island ferry of their own and said they expected their new MP to help make it happen.

Bloomfield said the constituents wanted to relocate Liviela Primary School from its current location by the beach to another place to protect it from any natural disasters such as tsumnami.

They also wanted to reinstate the plan to construct a new wharf for Vava’u.

The constituents also wanted to bring back the Ministry of Forestry’s tractors supply to assist local agricultural needs.

They wanted to put more emphasis on building fishing industry and also they needed a marketplace for selling of homemade goods and women’s handicrafts.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.
