Vanuatu PM Asked For Dissolution

The prime minister of Vanuatu Bob Loughman asks for the dissolution of parliament, as he faces a vote of no-confidence.

The Prime Minister of Vanuatu has called for a dissolution of parliament with over a-year-and-four-months still remaining in his four-year-tenure. Bob Loughman, who was elected in April 2020, is due to face a motion of no confidence in his leadership on Tuesday with the opposition group, led by Ralph Regenvanu, claiming to have the support of 29 MPs in the 52 seat parliament. During a media conference on Monday, Loughman confirmed that after a decision by his council of ministers he had met with the president of Vanuatu, Nikenike Vurobaravu, on Sunday and requested his consideration for a dissolution of parliament in light of the political instability.
