From Tagata o te Moana, 5:30 pm on 24 November 2018

Last week's election in Fiji was not immune to the increasingly world-wide phenomenon of so-called fake news around polling time; Papua New Guinea's opposition has accused the Treasurer Charles Abel of deceit in his 2019 national budget; Tahiti president admits to lying abouty French nuclear weapons test; The Marshall Islands has set new binding climate targets and encouraged other countries to follow suit; The number of Pacific workers in New Zealand's health sector is at record levels but there is still a need for more; Advocates for the restoration of ABC shortwave services to the Pacific say the Federal Labour party's proposal to restore the service to the Northern Territory could bode well for the region; Academics target education challenges in the Pacific; and French Polynesia's opposition challenges review of autonomy statute.
