The former Lands Minister, Ralph Regenvanu, says he is available for the position of Vanuatu’s next Prime Minister, Vanuatu Loop reports.

Regenvanu’s Graon mo Jastis party is one of 11 political groups including 36 MPs, which have signed a memorandum of agreement to form a new coalition.

It came after days of closed door negotiations and also features the Vanuaaku Party, led by former Prime Minister Joe Natuman, and the party of the jailed former prime minister, Moana Carcasses Kalosil, the Vanuatu Green Confederation.

Regenvanu said the agreement was not hard to reach, but whether the coalition would hold together even for the next week before Parliament sat, was another matter.
