King says Tonga should move to nuclear power

The impoverished South Pacific island nation of Tonga should move quickly toward nuclear power as its main source of electricity, its king said Friday.
Opening the nation's Parliament, King George Tupou V said while energy-hungry Tonga is planning to produce half its electricity from renewable energy within three years, "nature is dictating that we must look to nuclear energy."
He did not indicate how the near-bankrupt nation would fund a nuclear power plant. - Businessweek

I feel that development re: Appointment and Dismissal of a Prime Minister being out of His Majesty's hands a troublesome one.

Nice photos: they look to be kind people, both of them, but definitely overweight; Is it an ideal of beauty there or what?
Nevertheless, it's sad that the newlyweds didn't have time to enjoy each other...
I suppose that the cause of his death was a heart attack.
What relative was he to the King?

And as fot the King giving up his power: it's his decision and we cannot forbid him to do that. Monarchy nowadays is considered as an obsolate institution.

The cause of death -- a heart attack -- is mentioned in the link to the article.
The deceased Prince's mother HRH the Princess Mele Siu'ilikutapu is the King's niece (the late King's brother).

It's not King's decision, it's written in the Constitution. The King himself did his best not to give up his power which drove a big wadge between the people and their new monarch.

Hello got it wrong, she is not the King's neice, she's his cousin. She is the daughter of Prince Tu'ipelehake who was the brother of King Taufa'ahau Tupou IV and son of Queen salote Tupou III.

By the way, has anyone seen photographs of the "new" royal palace? The extensions to the building were finished in November but there hasn't been any reports or photos.
