New Caledonia Votes Against Independence From France

BoomRadioNG | November 5, 2018

Voters in the French Pacific territory of New Caledonia have rejected a bid for independence.

Final results showed that 56.4% chose to remain part of France while 43.6% voted to leave; a tighter result than some polls had predicted.

Turnout was about 81%. The vote was promised by a 1988 deal that put an end to a violent campaign for independence.

President Emmanuel Macron of France said it showed “confidence in the French republic”.

“I have to tell you how proud I am that we have finally passed this historic step together,” he added.
