Vanuatu daily news digest | 16 May 2014
In a move showing a political wisdom and a maturity, the change of Prime Minister to the veteran politician and nationally respected Joe Natuman will be regionally hailed as a signal achievement for the young nation. More MPs than had crossed the floor in agreeing to the vote of censure of Carcasses were ready to vote for Natuman as PM. Thirty-five had opted for censure before the outgoing PM had completely responded to the charges. Forty were behind Joe Natuman in the vote for the new PM for which there was only one nomination despite the large number of parties now in the new coalition. That the move was so effectively carried out shows certain old enmities have not been allowed to play any part in the transition. Proven abilities have been recognized and the move shows a return to the indigenous leadership required in Independence.
The new cabinet line-up as announced by PM Natuman immediately after completion of the replacement is as follows:
Prime Minister: Joe Natuman
Deputy PM and Minister for Trade and Commerce: Ham Lini Vanuararoa
Minister for Foreign Affairs and External Trade: Sato Kilman Livtanvanu
Minister of Finance remain with Maki Simelum
Minister of Internal Affairs: Charlot Salwai Tabimasmas
Minister of Education remains with Bob Loughman
Minister of Health: George Andre Wells
Minister of Justice: Alfred Carlot
Minister of Climate Change: James Bule
Minister of Lands remains with Ralph Regenvanu
Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries remains with David Tosul
Minister of Youth and Sport goes to Don Ken
Minister for Infrastructure remains with Esmon Sae.
