Vanuatu seat set to be filled by dead MP's son

1:45 pm on 29 May 2013

Unofficial results from a Vanuatu by-election show that the son of the late cabinet minister, Harry Iauko, has won his father's seat for Tanna.

It is thought Pascal Iauko, who is 27, is set to become the youngest MP elected in Vanuatu.

The seat became vacant after Harry Iauko's sudden death five months ago.
