Former MP for Tabiteuea South Tebuai Uaai has been formally declared the new Speaker of the Kiribati House of Parliament to replace the late Speaker Teatao Teannaki.
Uaai, 61, won over other nominated candidates Martin Tofinga, Dr Ueantabo Makenzie and Rutiano Benetito after 41 MPs cast their votes in a secret ballot at today’s 4th sitting of the 11th House of Parliament meeting.
Following the election, the new Speaker was sworn-in by Kiribati Chief Justice Sir John Muria.
Uaai told reporters outside parliament that his number one priority as newly elected Speaker is to ensure that he duly respects and honors his role as Speaker.
