After years with the post unfilled Vanuatu has finally got a new police commissioner.
The Daily Post reported that chief inspector Albert Nalpini will take the role.
Mr Nalpini's appointment was made after the Supreme Court ordered the Police Service Commission to send its recommendation to the Head of State.
The appointment was slow and Mr Nalpini had to challenge the Commission in court in order to have his recommendation sent to President Lonsdale.
The paper reported this was partly due to his recommendation having been made initially when the Commission was led by Api Jack Marikembo, who later lost the role.
