Tonga has been awarded the right to host the 2019 Pacific Games by the General Assembly in Wallis & Futuna a few minutes ago.
Tahiti and Tonga made their final presentations to the delegates of the General Assembly during the afternoon session today.
After the votes, the Assembly retired for a short break and came back for the announcement of the result.
It was very emphatic win with a count of 16-6 in favour of the island Kingdom.
The Hon. Minister of Internal Affars & Sports, Lord Vaea and President of TASANOC, Lord Tupou also signed the Games agreement afterwards.
More to come....
