Kiribati president to select his cabinet this week
01:34 am GMT+12, 29/06/2020, Kiribati

The President of Kiribati says he will begin selecting his cabinet ministers this week.
 
Taneti Maamau registered a convincing win in last week's presidential election beating his rival Banuera Berina by 8000 votes.
 
At his inauguration he called for calm after a heated campaign and promised transparency.
 
Maamau said he held off on selecting a cabinet last week to allow MPs to return to Tarawa from their respective constituencies.
 
He said one of the first orders of business would be addressing the country's ongoing Covid-19 pandemic response.
 
“Right now, I think the cabinet decision was earlier released that we will review the sort of closing of borders by the end of June, this month.
 
“Hopefully our new cabinet will make our decision by then,” he said.
