Opposition anger after Paris delays territorial vote in French Polynesia

The opposition in Tahiti remains angry that Paris has delayed the territorial election.

They were scheduled to take place at the end of January or at the beginning of February next year but have been delayed until April-May.

The opposition claims the delay is a political decision to help the Temaru government to prepare for what will be a very difficult election because of the poor state of the economy.
