Vanuatu's former clerk of Parliament, Lino Saksak, has been recruited to fill his former position because no one can be found to take his place.

Mr Saksak who retired last year after 27 years has been described as one of those few professional public servants who are hard to replace.

Our correspondent Len Garae says he speaks fluent English and French and knows the Standing Orders of Parliament by heart.
