Former Speaker of the house

Samoan MP resigns as suspension debate takes place

Last month the Gagaifomauga 3 MP accepted a decision from Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi to leave the Human Rights Protection Part after a long-running dispute.

According to the Prime Minister, Laauli had breached party policy by not supporting a constitutional amendment for a new division of constituencies to be put in place for next year's general election.

More recently Laauli had been found guilty of misleading the House by a Parliamentary Committee over allegations regarding the sourcing of a generator for the country's new prison.
