French Polynesia is moving closer to being re-listed by the United Nations as a colony seeking independence.

It was on that list from 1945 to 1947 before France had removed.

Richard Tuheiava , the senator for French Polynesia in the French parliament, is a member of Tavini, the independentist party led by Oscar Temaru, the current President of the French Polynesian.

The senator is one of the main advocate of French Polynesia's re-listing.
