Counting supporters ahead of no confidence vote in Vanuatu

Updated 4 December 2012, 12:03 AEDT

The opposition in Vanuatu claims it has the numbers to defeat the government of Prime Minister Sato Kilman in a vote of no confidence on Friday.

They claim they are making the move because the Kilman government is tainted by ministers who have been convicted by the courts and others who have cases pending.

Cronyism in diplomatic appointments, the sale of Vanuatu passports and sacrificing Vanuatu's traditional support for the Melanesians in Papua for closer relations with Indonesia are also given as reasons for the move.
