Gordon Darcy Lilo is the new Prime Minister of Solomon Islands.
Lilo won with a majority of 29 votes, retaining the current National Coalition for Rural Advancement's reign.
Solomon Star's Ednal Palmer reported that the media was barred from entering the parliament throughout the voting process.
After more than an hour behind closed doors, Gordon Darcy Lilo emerged through the Parliament doors, accompanied by the Governor General Sir Frank Kabui, who declared Gordon Darcy Lilo as the winner.
Gordon Darcy Lilo will now lead the Rural Advancement (NCRA) taking the role from the former Prime Minister Danny Philip who only sacked him last week.
More updates to come.
