The Marshall Islands, an island nation in South Pacific, is set to change the government, Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) radio reported Wednesday.

Two weeks after the elections were held, the result has not been announced due to the counting of postal votes from the remote islands.

However, the leader of the Marshall Islands opposition coalition, Litokwa Tomeung, has said that enough votes have been counted to confirm it has won 17 of the 33 seats in national parliament, and that he will be the new president, according to the ABC radio.

The opposition said it won because of unhappiness with the deal the current government has done with the United States over aid and the terms of a lease on a U.S. missile testing base.
