However, the number of women set to contest the election is likely to have fallen significantly.
In the 2012 poll, a record 10 women ran, however none were voted in.
This time, at least 3 women are hoping to run as independent candidates, including Jenny Ligo who contested both the 2012 and 2008 elections.
Ligo says politics in Vanuatu is still failing to represent the needs of women.
Meanwhile, politicians in the past years have failed repeatedly to unite people at north Efate regardless of differences.
