19 July 2012. The People's Representative for Tongatapu 7, Mr. Sangster Saulala confirmed the acceptance of his ministerial appointment when he was sworn in at the Legislative Assembly on July 19, 2012.

The former ‘Otumotuanga'ofa Democratic Party member, Mr. Saulala is now the Minister for Agriculture, Food, Forestry and Fisheries,

Earlier this month, he relinquished the same ministerial appointment after a one-day resignation. However, the results of a recent independent survey carried out in the former People's Representative Tongatapu 7 constituency, highlighted that 71% of Mr Saulala's constituency did not support the Parliament's motion of no confidence to oust the Prime Minister Lord Tu'ivakano and his Government.
