[UPDATED] Unofficial election results: record number of independents; Bohn, Lini, Boedoro get the boot

Updated 14:10pm VUT 24 January

Voter dissatisfaction with the big parties following last year’s corruption scandal has been heard loud and clear. Here’s our list of the unofficial results of the 2016 Vanuatu General Election, compiled from Daily Post, Television Blong Vanuatu, Yumi Toktok Stret and FM107.

Robert Bohn Jr is out on Epi, Phillip Boedoro has been trounced on Maewo by Ian Wilson, and it has been confirmed rumours from Pentecost are that veteran politician Ham Lini is also out, although this is unconfirmed. On Tanna, GJP’s Andrew Napuat is neck-a-neck with Xavier Iauko of the Iauko Group, meaning that a recount is likely there. A record nine ten independent candidates have been elected.

To repeat, these are provisional, unofficial results only. Many vote tallies are incomplete, and some figures are probably incorrect. We will no longer update this tally as the official estimate is due out possibly Monday morning. Please credit Vanuatu Daily Digest when reposting.
