Another no confidence motion in Vanuatu

6:56 am on 10 May 2014

In Vanuatu a motion for a vote of no confidence in the Government of Moana Carcasses has been lodged.

The Speaker of Parliament, Philip Boedoro, told MPs Friday afternoon that a motion had been deposited and that it is in order and will be debated on Thursday next week.

The Opposition Office is not yet making any comment on the motion, except to say it had been initiated by government backbenchers.

It will be the third motion brought against Mr Carcasses who came to power in March last year.

The more recent attempt to remove him, in February, was withdrawn before it could be debated after six MPs who had defected returned to the government side.
