Eric Benjamin has been elected as the new Speaker of St Helena’s legislative council.

Mr Benjamin, who has previously served as both Speaker and a member of the executive council, was the only person nominated at the inaugural meeting of the new council following the island’s general election on 17 July 2013.

He was not on the island to take up his post. Councillors were told he had been receiving medical treatment in Cape Town.
