The ousted French Polynesian president, Oscar Temaru, has again asked the French president to dissolve the territorial assembly and call fresh elections after the collapse of his government.
In a letter to Paris, Mr Temaru says the Polynesian voters are fond of democratic values and can't understand how their choice has been undermined.
The opposition defeated the government in a vote of no-confidence at the weekend.
The new anti-Temaru majority has decided to convene an assembly sitting on the 19th of October to elect a new president.
The speaker says the decision is illegal because it was taken after he had closed the session.
In a French newspaper interview, Mr Temaru has denounced what he calls the mafia methods used by the Chirac clan to bring about the return of the Flosse administration.
