At the beginning of 2003 Vanuatu was governed by a coalition of the Vanua'aku Party ( VP), headed by the prime minister, Edward Natapei, and the Union of Moderate Parties ( UMP), headed by the deputy prime minister, Serge Vohor. Politics in Vanuatu were dominated by events in three main areas during that year: the management of the Vanuatu Commodities Marketing Board ( VCMB); the management of the Vanuatu Maritime Authority ( VMA); and the fortunes of Barak Sope, the former prime minister who was jailed for forgery in 2002. These events generated increasing dissatisfaction with the Union of Moderate Parties as a governing party and contributed to another change of national government in December 2003.
