    Australia is facing calls to take a stronger stand on the political crisis in Samoa. Fiame Naomi Mata’afa has been sworn in as prime minister, despite her predecessor claiming the ceremony was illegal. Australia is not recognising either leader as PM, saying the matter is still being contested in the courts. But Fiame told Pacific Beat’s Catherine Graue that it is clear her party won the election.
