Marshall Islands Parliament prepares for no-confidence vote

Updated 18 March 2014, 9:51 AEDT

The Marshall Islands parliament is expected to debate a motion of no-confidence against President Christopher Loeak when it reconvenes today.

The motion was put forward by the opposition which claims the government has something to hide over its failed attempt to nominate former Lebanese security head Jamil el-Sayed to represent the Marshalls at UNESCO.

The nomination was withdrawn after reports in France linked Mr el-Sayed to Hezbollah militants but the opposition is still seeking answers.

Presenter: Richard Ewart

Speaker: Alvin Jacklick, Opposition Senator
