No Confidence vote in PM


This Friday (18th February 2011) the parliament of Vanuatu will hold a no confidence vote in Prime Minister Sato Kilman. This follows a move last week by 28 of the 54 parliamentarians to move the motion for a vote of no confidence.

This will be the second time in two months that a Prime Minister has been subject to a no confidence vote in the parliament. Just over two months ago Edward Natapei was removed by Mr Kilman in a similar vote.
