Pastor elected as President of underpopulated island country Vanuatu

Tallis Obed Moses, a long-serving Pastor and former leader of the Presbyterian Church, has been elected President of the Vanuatu Republic in the southwest Pacific Ocean.
The 63-year-old was sworn in Thursday after winning 39 votes against his opponent, former prime minister Maxim Carlos Korman.
He replaces the former President Baldwin Lonsdale who died suddenly from a heart attack last month while serving in office.
Dan McGarry, the media director of the Vanuatu Daily Post who was at Parliament this morning, said Mr. Moses’ reputation as a man of “impeccable moral character” was a decisive factor played a significant role in his being elected to succeed Lonsdale.
The Vanuatu Republic is an archipelago nation with 270,000 population. It’s located in the southwest Pacific Ocean, north of New Zealand and east of Australia.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what
    all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog
    like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100%
    sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers
