Tonga Prime Minister urges Finance minister to resign

The Tonga Prime Minister has written to the Minister of Finance and National Planning Lisiate 'Akolo asking him to resign.
According to the Tonga Broadcasting Corporation, the decision is based on Lord Tu'ivakano's disappointment in Mr 'Akolo's performance and how he carried out his duties.
The matter also relates to cabinet's approval last month of a five percent increase in the Cost of Living Allowance or COLA for civil servants.
In the Prime Minister's letter, he says it was clear during a meeting on December the 20th that the Finance Minister did not warm or seem to agree to the cabinet's decision.
