Matangi Tonga reported the petitions, presented on Monday, come alongside claims there were no checks and balances and corruption existed in government.
A former government minister Clive Edwards presented a petition signed by former politicians. Noble MP Lord Nuku presented a petition from the country’s nobles.
The third petition was presented by former MP Teisina Fuko from members of the general public. Fuko said a fourth petition from another sector of society also being prepared.
Edwards said he believed that once a Royal Commission for Investigation was appointed, a caretaker government would need to be put in place.
Fuko said there was pressure for a major public demonstration to present the petitions, but they decided it was best to avoid possible confrontations with government supporters. - RNZ
