  17. ^ Kilman was elected by Parliament in 2010, then ousted in a vote of no confidence on 24 April and succeeded by former Minister Vohor from the preceding cabinet (also hitherto leading the second-largest party in Opposition). On 13 May, the Vanuatuan Court of Appeal annulled the election of Vohor on the grounds of a constitutional irregularity and reinstated Kilman. However, come June the premiership of Kilman was itself voided by the Supreme Court, due to a constitutional irregularity in his initial election in December. Natapei, the most recent lawfully-elected PM—in 2008—then served briefly as Acting Prime Minister until Parliament re-elected Kilman later that month. Legally the respective terms in office of both Kilman and Vohor between 2010 and 26 June have been declared null and void, as it was retroactively established that they were not lawfully holding office during that time.
