Frequent changes in leadership a waste of time and money

By Royson Willie PORT VILA, Vanuatu (Vanuatu Daily Post, April 28, 2011) - A representative of youths in Port Vila, Vanuatu has said young people are tired of political instability.

Eugene Melep who lives in Fresh Wota said young people are not happy to see the constant change of government and political instability.

"It seems politicians are constantly fighting for power for their own personal interests. We are tired of seeing such politics because it has existed since 1980. Our leaders are not portraying a good example to young people who want to enter politics in the future. They should let a government complete its full term because public funds are wasted when there are constant changes in government. The money does not belong to politicians but the people of Vanuatu. The more they waste public funds less service delivery will reach the grassroots," he said.

Melep said the rate of crime has increased and leaders often ask why this is so.

He said it is because service delivery is not reaching everyone in Vanuatu.

The youth representative said the country recently went through a national census and the population of Vanuatu has been recorded an increase.

But instead of ensuring public fund is used to cater for this increase in terms of service delivery, it is wasted instead on the constant changes of government, Melep said.
