Vanuatu parliament to debate motion of no confidence

Vanuatu's parliament will today debate a motion of no confidence in the government that appears likely to fail.

 The opposition bloc, led by Ishmael Kalsakau, filed the motion last week, citing public dissatisfaction with the government's progress.

This is the fifth attempt by Mr Kalsakau to remove the Charlot Salwai-led government since the 2016 election.

However, the Daily Post reports that in parliament yesterday, the government continued to command its usual majority.
