The newly elected representative from the Nanumaga island constituency Halo Tuavai has today stated to Tuvalu Media that he will join the government.

The decision was based on the need to assist and support his fellow colleague from Nanumaga, Speaker to Parliament Otinielu Tauteleimalae Tausi.

Tuavai was the only candidate in the recent bye-election for the island of Nanumaga last month. He is replacing former MP Namoto Kelisiano who resigned from parliament earlier on.

The government now holds two thirds of the seats in the House of Parliament.
