President Hilda Heine claims ‚Chinese interests‘ are trying to topple her from power.
Marshall Islands President Hilda Heine has accused “Chinese interests” of trying to force her from office after her administration refused to back plans to establish an investment haven in the central Pacific country.

Heine survived a no-confidence motion on Monday by a solitary vote after weeks of background scheming by political opponents. Parliament was split 16-16, leaving her rivals just short of the necessary majority.
