New Tuvalu parliament to choose PM

5:34 am on 27 September 2010

The Tuvalu Parliament is to sit today to choose the Prime Minister.

This follows elections earlier this month in which 10 sitting MPs were re-elected, including the caretaker Prime Minister, Apisai Ielemia.

There have been reports from Funafuti that the five new MPs will be pushing for a new leadership.
