Gary Griffith has been approved as this country's next police commissioner.
The motion was approved a short while ago in the parliament.
Members of parliament sat this afternoon to debate a motion to approve Griffith as commissioner of police.
The prime minister initially stated that the government would treat Griffith's nomination like all the others which had been rejected.
But he then lifted the whip to allow members to vote however they pleased.
It resulted in Griffith receiving the majority of votes.
