‘Squatter’ politicians stop Vanuatu classes
Parents on Tanna island, in Vanuatu, last week have urged the education minister to remove National United Party politicians from Lenakel secondary school.
Political parties traditionally use school facilities to run their congresses, families say.
The parents said children are yet to enter classrooms and dormitory for the start of the current term because politicians are still occupying them as of last week.
They said they have paid school fees and their children are missing out on their education.
During a talkback segment on local radio, parents urged Marcelino Pipite and the prime minister, Sato Kilman, to remove the politicians from the school where they have been conducting a party congress.
