Wallis And Futuna To Elect New Assembly Member
Poll scheduled for March 17 to choose representative to France

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (Radio New Zealand International, Feb. 13, 2013) – Voters in Wallis and Futuna have been called to the polls next month to elect a new member of the French National Assembly.

This comes after the constitutional court of France last month annulled the results of last June’s legislative election because of campaign irregularities.

As a consequence, David Verge lost his seat and was banned from running for office for a year.

Fresh elections have been scheduled for March the 17th.

Voters will also be asked to choose four new members of the territorial assembly after four members of the electorate of Alo were struck off last year in a French supreme court decision.
