I’m wondering who Samoa is supporting for the next Director General of the Secretariat of the Pacific Community.
I understand that Papali’i David Cohen, the former Deputy Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Department of Interior for Insular Affairs, is one of the candidates and the new SPC Director General should be selected in the near future.
Papali’i David Cohen led the U.S. government delegation to the late Head of State Susuga Malietoa Tanumafili II’s funeral.
Papali’i David’s father is Papalii Petoni Ala’ilima who is presently living in Sapapalii, Savaii.
In my humble opinion, Samoa should support a son of Samoa for such an important regional position.
