Vanuatu extra-ordinary Parliamentary session this afternoon to vote on Speaker

2:53 pm on 3 April 2013

The Vanuatu coalition Government will this afternoon attempt to remove the Speaker, George Wells, and replace him with its candidate, the Vanuaaku Pati's Philip Boedoro.

An expected vote of no confidence in the new Moana Carcasses Kalosil administration will not happen today as the new Opposition bloc led by Ham Lini has not yet lodged a motion.

Our correspondent says the Opposition is waiting for the outcome of the vote on the Speaker to gauge whether it has the support needed to remove the government.
