Vanuatu will today get a new ombudsman.

The president, Iolu Johnson Abil, will appoint the new office holder this afternoon to replace Peter Taurokoto whose contract ends this month.

There are three applicants for the position.

It will be the fourth ombudsman since parliament passed the ombudsman act.
