Vanuatu's President Baldwin Lonsdale has died at the age of 67 after a sudden heart attack, RIA Novosti reports.

Mr Lonsdale, an Anglican priest who was appointed to the largely ceremonial role in September 2014, died in Port Villa, the Pacific Island nation's capital, early on Saturday, the newspaper said. "His body is reportedly at the Vila Central Hospital", the newspaper said.

In 2015 Mr Lonsdale begged the world to help his country rebuild after Cyclone Pam, blaming climate change for extreme weather patterns affecting his people.


Australian Governor-General Peter Cosgrove extended condolences to the president's family, government and the people of Vanuatu following his death on Friday night.

When Vanuatu's Speaker of Parliament, Marcelline Pipite, pardoned 14 government MPs convicted of corruption, Mr Lonsdale returned from overseas, apologised for the abuse of power and rescinded the pardons.

A furious President Lonsdale returned and overturned the pardons, and then dissolved parliament and called a snap election.
