Vanuatu Daily News Digest | Constitutional Case judgement

Late yesterday afternoon, Justice Aru (in a packed courtroom), having heard an afternoon of submissions in Constitutional Case No. 2 of 2015, declared there would be a decision on Wednesday afternoon. Fuller news of pleadings can be read in today’s Daily Post, with arguments drawn from the extensive body of case law regarding motions of no confidence available to litigants in Vanuatu. Yesterday’s hearing concerns the motion of no confidence which was quickly swept aside by a new Speaker – of a new Government – declaring the motion in admissible.

Today we have hearings in the allegations of bribery levelled against Members of Parliament.
