If these reforms are truly for the best of the country then we have to accept it. Life still goes on" (quoted in SO , 3 Oct 2002). Two by-elections were held in the period under review, one at the electoral constituency of Faleata East around the outskirts of Apia and the other at Alataua West on Savai`i Island.
