Please don't worry...
...but this just came through the e-mail:
"Election results just announced and Gordon Darcy Lilo was elected PM after only one round of voting. Lilo received 29 votes, Tozaka - 9, Sogavare - 9, and Manetoali - 2. The Malaita Maasina Forum has expressed an intention to hold a protest march if Lilo is elected PM. It remains to be seen what, if anything, that will mean."
Aaron and the kids should arrive on the Kosko in just a few hours, and the SITAG director has advised Katherine and me to stay home (gives me a little bit more time to unpack!) while he goes to the wharf. We can hear the helicopters flying overhead, so we know that RAMSI is working hard to keep the situation under control. Thanks for your prayers!
