Vanuatu Daily News Digest | 4 December 2015Posted: December 4, 2015
The Bribery Case is running yet as now the Leadership Code is being invoked. Daily Post’s Thompson Marango carries the story today of the Public Prosecutor appealing that a trial under the Leadership Code Act is still appropriate. Justice Fatiaki’s decision concerning the application of the Leadership Code was considered as non-binding on Justice Sey.
More news of this matter will follow in the next bulletin, along with news of the
Constitutional application concerning the provisions relating to Dissolution being heard this afternoon.
It is thought that the Dissolution will mean some like 2,000 potential new and eligible young voters not being able to vote in Port Vila, as there will not be time for the registration process to take place. Principal Electoral Officer Fr Charles Vatu pointed out to listeners of Radio Vanuatu today that no new cards could be issued: only replacement cards on application.
