Tuvalu PM says he's ready for new Ombudsman

Updated 18 August 2014, 11:16 AEST

The Prime Minister of Tuvalu Enele Sopoaga says he's ready to open his government up for scrutiny when the country's first Chief Ombudsman takes up his post.

Legislation paving the way for the appointment has been on the statute books for years, and Mr Sopoaga has accused his predecessors of "sitting on their hands".

The Prime Minister says there is plenty of work for the ombudsman to do and no-one should be excluded from the process, not even him.
