Breaking news: Motion of no confidence fails

The agenda item concerning the Motion of No Confidence in the Government of PM Charlot Salwai Tabimasmas did not even obtain a full hearing this afternoon in the Vanuatu Parliament. Everyone was there, a further 8 withdrew their signatures, but the Speaker ruled the matter could be taken no further when all there seemed to be was bickering from the supporters of the Motion. We the public were not given a single reason to reduce our confidence in the leader of the Government, nor was our trust in him diminished. But the Opposition wasted an hour of everyone’s time trying to get a chance to bring him down. The motion ended up in the poubelle.

The second extraordinary sitting was closed.
