9:19 pm GMT+12, 24/06/2020, Kiribati

Taneti Maamau has been sworn-in as President of Kiribati for the next four years at the Parliament House in Ambo Wednesday.
 
In his remarks, President Maamau said he humbly accepts the decision that has been made by the people of Kiribati.
 
“I continue to accept this responsibility with humbleness, respect and whole-heartedly to fulfil all tasks bestowed upon me and my party, Tobwaan Kiribati Party (TKP)." said Mr Maamau.
 
“We all believe that during the campaign at the beginning of this year until early this week, it was very tough and this shows the strength and how a democratic government works by accepting the will of the people for the election of its leaders.
 
“Worrying shouldn't continue to prevail in Kiribati because your government will maintain its transparent leadership.
 
“It’s obvious the people of Kiribati views and development plans that have been laid out in the new manifesto. And this will be the way forward for our government for the next four years so that wealth, health and peace in Kiribati can be improved without leaving anyone behind.
 
“These views and plans will motivate the people of Kiribati to use our country’s resources for their development and benefit and shouldn’t take it for granted.
 
“If we all do this then the growth of our nation will continue for the better and aligns well with our long-term development plan for Kiribati for 20 years or KV20,” said President Maamau.
