Walter Hadye Lin̄i (1942 – 21 February 1999) was a Raga Anglican priest and politician who was the first Prime Minister of Vanuatu, from independence in 1980 to 1991. He was born at Agatoa village, Pentecost Island. On his mother’s side, he was a descendant of the high chief Virasangvulu, while on his father’s side, he was descended from the famous weaver, Nuenue, as well as from the high chief Viralalau.
His term ended in 1991, due to factionalism within his party. He joined the National United Party, of which he was leader at the time of his death.
In 1988, President Ati George Sokomanu sought unsuccessfully to remove Lini from office.
Lini suffered a stroke in 1987 but subsequently remained active in politics.
Lin̄i went on to lead the VP to victory in the 1983 and the 1987 general elections.
Lin̄i was instrumental in the NHNP changing its name to the Vanua’aku Pati (VP). He was elected Chief Minister following the VP’s victory in the 1979 New Hebridean general election, and ascended to the position of Prime Minister upon Vanuatu’s independence on July 30, 1980.
After returning from his studies in New Zealand, Lin̄i, along with Donald Kalpokas and John Bani, formed the New Hebrides Cultural Association and launched its mouthpiece newspaper, New Hebrides Viewpoint. At that time, New Hebrides was a condominium ruled by the United Kingdom and France. Soon after the formation of the New Hebrides Cultural Association, Lin̄i and others formed the New Hebrides National Party (NHNP), with Lin̄i responsible for publishing the newspaper as well as recruiting party members on Aoba, North Pentecost and Maewo. In 1974, the Party Congress elected Lin̄i as full-time national president of the party, with Fred Timakata vice-president. In May, 1974, Lin̄i addressed the United Nations Committee of 24 on decolonisation, and called for independence for the New Hebrides by 1977.
Lin̄i started school at the age of five when he attended the Australian Missionary Sunday School at Lamalanga on North Pentecost. In 1950, he began attending Nazareth School at Agatoa. From there, he attended Vureas School on Aoba. After finishing school, Lin̄i worked in the Anglican Diocesan office at Lolowai, before undertaking theological training at St Peter’s College in Siota, Solomon Islands and St John’s College, Auckland.
