New Caledonia ministers again fail to elect president
01:37 am GMT+12, 01/04/2021, New Caledonia

Once again, a meeting of the New Caledonia government today failed to elect a President.
 
The split between Thierry Santa (4 votes), Samuel Hnepeune (3 votes) and Louis Mapou (3 votes) remains constant.  
 
This is the third time they failed to elect on who should lead the new administration.  
 
The collegial government is only properly constituted if there is a president.  
 
The old government is still in a caretaker role.
 
After the five pro-independence ministers brought down the old government, their parties returned with six ministers, but their split in their support for the two contenders Louis Mapou and Samuel Hnepeune
