Former Prime Minister of Tuvalu, Willy Telavi, says he did nothing wrong leading up to a vote of no confidence. Instead, Telavi has blamed the political turmoil on Governor-General Sir Iakoba Italeli.
Eight of the country’s 15 MPs voted for the motion, and Telavi was replaced by Enele Sopoaga as Prime Minister this week.
Prior to that, Telavi had been accused of delaying a vital by-election after the Minister of Finance died in December last year.
