Vanuatu civil society network pushes for political reform

From , 5:02 am on 17 July 2018

Vanuatu's Civil Society Influencing Network is seeking political reform.

The network, which represents 38 civil societies groups in Vanuatu is funded by the Pacific Islands Forum to encourage good governance, leadership and accountability or what is called GLA.

The network has become closely linked with the newly formed women's political party, Leleon Vanua.

Andrina Thomas told Don Wiseman of the forces behind the emergence of the party but he began by asking about concerns with governance and accountability in Vanuatu.
