In this In Brief the authors consider the mode of delivery of activities in support of women who chose to contest the election in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. They share the discussions of a locally organised candidate reflection session held during the campaign period to highlight the value — and, to privilege — Tongan women’s experiences in contesting an election.
