Landslide win predicted for Samoa Elections

  • Te Whanganui-ā-Tara

E whakapae ana tētahi kai-pāpāho i Hāmoa, ka toa mārika i te Pirimia o te wā, i a Tuilaepa Malielegaoi, te kōwhiringa pōti kāwanatanga. Ko te rā tēnei i tahuri atu ai te aro o Hāmoa nui tonu ki te tuku pōti, ā ki Pōneke tatari atu ai a Capital Radio Samoa i ngā hua.

Kaore ano ngā whakatau kua puta, engari e whakapae ana a Capital Radio Samoa ka noho tonu a Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi hei pirimia.

“Auelua has been quoted as saying he has already won 26 seats out of 49 seats of Parliament than obviously he will be there,” hei tā te kaikōrero reo irirangi a Afamasaga Telua Moresi.

I mua i te paunga o te whakapāhotanga tekau ma rua hāora te roa mo ngā pōtitanga a motu ki Hamoa, e ai ki Moresi kei te hiakai ngā uri Hamoa i Aotearoa ki ngā kōrero o te wā, “The Samoans here are very proud to be here but also they are very attached to their families back home so big events like 5 year election, we go out of our way to provide that information to listeners.”

Kotahi rau tekau ma ono mano ngā tangata kua rehitatia mo te tuku pōti i te kōwhiringa mo tēnei tau, ā, o ngā tūru wha tekau ma iwa ki te whare paremata ko te tikanga, e rima ngā tūru e wātea ana mo ngā wāhine.

“I think Samoa should be congratulated in allowing that quota for women I think it’s a smart move and brave for a Pacific Island nation given that historically the man has been the head of the family,” hei tā Moresi.

Toru tekau ma ono ngā tau e noho ana a Malielegaoi hei kaitorangapu, he tekau ma waru hoki ngā tau hei pirimia. Mena ka toa ia, koia te pirimia kaitā rawa mo Hamoa.

“Most of the things he's done for the country I think it’s the best, if you look like how he changed the dateline, thats a huge change. Driving on the other side of the road, and lots of people argued about it, but for me I thought it was the best change for Samoa,” hei tā Moresi.

Ko tōna tikanga ka puta te otinga o ngā whakatau a te po nei.
