From , 5:03 am on 30 October 2018

French Polynesia's pro-independence leader Oscar Temaru has lost his seat in the territorial assembly.

France's top administrative court ruled that his campaign accounts for the May election were deficient and declared him ineligible for the seat for one year.
Walter Zweifel has been following the story and Ben Robinson-Drawbridge asked him if this has come as a surprise.
