Barak Sope, a former Vanuatuan Prime Minister who led the country between the years 1999 to 2001, is contending again for the country’s upcoming election, with hopes to become the Prime Minister yet again.
As the country’s election day draws near, Sope has raised concerns warning the country on its dual citizenship policy with concerns on foreigners in the country.
His warning came as a result of five foreigners contesting the country’s upcoming election, from a total of 200 candidates.
Sope fears that if more foreigners take offers in the country, this might lead to them having a majority of citizens, who later could run and control the country.
He blames the country’s dual citizenship policy that was passed in the parliament allowing these foreigners to contest the upcoming election.
With plans to bring an end to corruption, Sope is running for parliament again and vows that if he is elected, he plans to change the dual passport law of the country.
