President of Tahiti Nui (French Polynesia) makes strong case for United Nations non-self governing status

Requests regional support at Pacific Islands Forum


"From 1977 to 2011, we have been granted six updates of our “constitution”. But none of these are in fact more than a “political sandbox” for kids to play in. Indeed, our so called “State of autonomy” is no more than one organic law within France’s own body of laws. One that is written and changed by Paris. Who would ever seriously call this a 'constitution'?"

Oscar Temaru, President, Tahiti Nui (French Polynesia)
