From , 3:04 pm on 25 July 2018

Vanuatu's former prime minister Joe Natuman says his political career is not over yet.

The Court of Appeal last week upheld a decision by the Speaker of Parliament to declare the Tanna MP's seat vacant.

This followed Mr Natuman's conviction for perverting the course of justice, for which he was given a two-year suspended sentence.

Johnny Blades spoke to Mr Natuman.
