WELLINGTON - Anote Tong has been re-elected president of the small Pacific island nation of Kiribati for a third successive term, according to official results announced Saturday. Tong received 14,315 votes, 2,449 more than his nearest challenger Tetaua Taitai, Kiribati Chief Justice John Muria said. This will be Tong's final term in office as the Kiribati constitution restricts the president to a maximum of three four-year terms. He won the election in July 2003 with a slim plurality of votes cast. He was easily re-elected on 17 October 2007, for a second term (64%).
