Vanuatu. According to CountryAAH, Port-Vila is the capital city of Vanuatu. Three people were killed and nearly 200 were arrested in March after ethnic strife broke out in Blacksands, an area on the outskirts of the capital Vila where thousands of people who have moved from other islands in Vanuatu have settled. The government announced a two-week state of emergency when public meetings in and around the capital were banned. It was also prohibited to travel from the smaller islands to the main island of Éfaté. The otherwise unarmed police force was allowed to carry weapons. The brawl should have started with a magician accused of using black magic to kill a rival. People from the islands of Tanna and Ambrym were beaten with machetes and knives. According to the local police, this was the worst outbreak of ethnic violence ever in the country.
Politically, as in previous years, it was turbulent. In May, the Minister of Agriculture was dismissed after cooperating with opposition parties in local elections. In June, our country’s party (Vanuaaku Pati, VP) was forced to leave the government coalition after the party supported a planned vote of no confidence in Prime Minister Ham Lini. But opposition leader Serge Vohor, who several times previously tried to put Lini through a distrust vote, this time withdrew his motion and joined his party the Union of Moderate Parties (UMP) into the government coalition. Vohor himself was appointed Minister of Infrastructure. Already in July, however, Vohor was kicked out of the government after threatening a government official for not getting his first salary. Lini retained his majority in Parliament by reintroducing our country’s party to the government. In July, the Deputy Prime Minister was also dismissed, as did Foreign Minister Sato Kilman, after it was revealed that members of his party The People’s Progressive Party (PPP) had been involved in a government check fraud. In addition, the Minister of Youth and Sports Dustan Hilton was dismissed. He was sentenced in August for fraud along with another MP from MPP.
