There was applause and a sense of relief in Vanuatu's parliament today as Tallis Obed Moses was voted in as Vanuatu's new President after a fourth round of voting.
Mr Moses, who had been a Presbyterian pastor, was sworn in this afternoon in a brief ceremony in parliament.
He was one of 16 people put forward for the role and emerged with two/thirds of the vote after three rounds of voting.
The media director of the Vanuatu Daily Post Dan McGarry was at parliament this morning for the vote. He spoke with Koroi Hawkins shortly after the result came through.
