Vanuatu by-election to be called following the death of Havo Moli

A Vanuatu MP has died just weeks after being installed as a Deputy Speaker of Parliament.

Havo Moli was the leader of the Nagriamel movement and the sole MP for the Malo/Aore constituency.

His death means there will be a by-election less than a month since Vanuatu went to the polls for the snap election.

ABC reports the death of Moli will not affect the balance of power in the Vanuatu parliament.
