The Speaker of Kiribati’s Parliament, Teatao Teannaki has died of heart attack Tuesday, according to Radio Kiribati.
The late Speaker was 80.
Immediate families of the former MP for Abaiang Island on Tarawa told Radio Kiribati News Teannaki was at a meeting at ‘Ueen Abaiang’ in Betio debating a hot and controversial issue with the people when he collapsed.
Teannaki had just returned from an overseas trip Monday this week representing the country in his role as Speaker of the House of Parliament.
Teatao Teannaki served as President of Kiribati from 8 July 1991 until 1 October 1994 and has been MP for his home island of Abaiang since (1994) until his defeat in the general elections earlier this year.
He was sworn in as the new Speaker of Parliament on February 5, 2016 after he beat the long dominant BTK Speaker, Taomati Iuta, who also passed away this year, with 26 to 19 votes.
