Father Walter Lini on Vanuatu citizenshipPosted: October 8, 2012
“It was important for Vanuatu to be very careful about the issue of citizenship, simply in order to prevent the country being over-run by those wanting it for its material benefits rather than from any true feeling for the country.”
—Father Walter Lini, Vanuatu’s first Prime Minister and one of the founding fathers of an independent Vanuatu.
From Lini’s book Vanuatu. He was speaking about the rationale for the citizenship provisions used by the drafters of Vanuatu’s Constitution.
