Vanuaku Pati candidate wins Vanuatu by-election
3:27 pm GMT+12, 17/12/2009, Vanuatu

A candidate of Vanuatu’s ruling Vanuaku Pati, Philip Charley, has won the by-election in the constituency of Futuna, Aniwa, Erromango and Aneityum.

According to unofficial results, Mr Charley won the seat well ahead of the candidates of the Union of Moderate Parties and the National United Party, which is led by the opposition leader, Ham Lini.

The by-election was called after the incumbent, Ture Kailo, died in Canberra in October while he was attending a seminar organised by the Australian government.

Mr Kailo also belonged to the Vanuaku Pati
