Dear Editor,

I learn from a report in the Vanuatu Daily Post that Vanuatu has a Leadership Code and that state officials have been charged for breaching it.

That is very progressive. It shows Vanuatu is committed to ensuring good governance.

That state officials are subjected to democratic accountability and transparency and public scrutiny over their actions.

I wonder how many other Pacific island countries have that — Leadership Code.

It is clearly a good governance model to adopt and should be adopted if countries are serious about good governance.
