Opposition commands numbers to topple Kilman

The Vanuatu Opposition bloc has the numbers to topple PM Sato Kilman.

State Minister Alfred Charlot last week resigned as Minister for education and defected to the opposition as he feels that the PM has allowed the the current political situation to get too far out of hand.

Two other Government back benchers also defected after loosing trust in Kilman’s leadership. The Opposition bloc with the election of new MP Kenneth Natapei currently commands 27 MP’s on its side.
