1:45 pm on 3 January 2013

Vanuatu's prime minister, Sato Kilman, has appointed an MP from Pentecost island, Tony Nari, as the new minister of public utilities.

Mr Nari replaces Harry Iauko who suddenly died last month.

Mr Nari contested last October's election under the ticket of the Iauko Group which was formed after the supreme court disallowed Mr Iauko to use the opposition Vanua'aku Pati's name and emblems.
