Reports from Vanuatu indicate moves are underway to organise a motion of no-confidence against the new Prime Minister Joe Natuman.

Mr Natuman was elected by forty of the country's 52 MPs on Thursday after a successful motion of no-confidence to remove Moana Carcasses as Prime Minister.

The Vanuatu Daily Digest reports that Mr Carcasses is organising a motion against Mr Natuman and has seventeen signatures in support of it.
