Country Report Vanuatu 4th Quarter

Vanuatu's political scene will remain turbulent in 2015-16 and renewed attempts to dislodge the latest prime minister, Joe Natuman, are likely. The next general election is due in late 2016 but an earlier poll is possible.

Corruption and tensions between the police and political authorities may cause political instability in the forecast period. Land ownership will also remain a contentious issue.

Improving fiscal management will be a key priority under Mr Natuman, but progress will be slow. Overspending and regular supplementary budgets are expected to remain a feature of the public finances.
