Vanuatu PM wants constitution amended
Kilman’s made the call following last Friday’s adjournment of the extraordinary session of parliament.
He said Vanuatu needs to amend its constitution to prevent MPs from crossing the floor and changing political parties, which he says has resulted in the waste of public money.
Kilman’s also calling on the public to support the government and the opposition if the government makes a proposal to amend the constitution.
Last year the government spent more than US$1 million compensating politicians when Kilman’s government replaced that of the former Prime Minister, Edward Natapei.
If parliament votes for the motion against Kilman on Monday, it’s expected the government will spend the same amount again in compensation.
Meanwhile, the Vanuatu prime minister has reshuffled his Cabinet, in the lead up to today’s session of parliament that’s been called to debate a motion of no-confidence.
On Friday an extraordinary session was adjourned due to the lack of a quorum but earlier in the week the opposition claimed it was backed by 34 of the 52 MPS.
Sato Kilman’s made the former Minister of ni Vanuatu business, Ralph Regenvanu Minister of Lands and given the back bench MP Esmon Sae the ni Vanuatu business portfolio.
The former Minister of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries Marcellino Pipite’s been transferred to head the Ministry of Education and the back bencher James Wango will now head the Ministry of Agriculture.
