Updated 29 November 2013, 17:53 AEST

Vanuatu has made what some are calling it’s biggest ammendment in history to it’s Constitution, by allowing dual citizenship.

49 members of Parliament debated over a five hour meeting and also made policy changes towards land ownership and the way land disputes are to be dealt with.

Prime Minister Moana Carcasses made a passionate speech about the Ni-Vanuatu citizens who left the country around the time of independence who he believed deserved citizenship in the land of their heritage.

Lands Minister Ralph Regenvanu was on the key supporters and he spoke with Catherine Graue.

Presenter: Catherine Graue

Speaker: Ralph Regenvanu, Vanuatu Lands Minister
