The Vanuatu Opposition is calling on the Government to focus on political reform instead of trying to control the media.
The newly formed Sato Kilman led government is making stricter media laws a priority after weeks of heavy public criticism around political instability in the country.
But the Opposition say laws to promote stability and integrity in politics would be more beneficial for the country.
And it says more responsible reporting might be better achieved if the Right to Information Bill was enacted.
The Opposition says the previous government had already consulted on the issue and would ensure journalists got access to accurate facts and figures for their reporting.
