French Polynesia’s assembly has approved a no confidence motion to oust the coalition government of Oscar Temaru formed last April.
The motion, which was supported by 29 members in the 57-strong assembly, has returned Gaston Tong Sang to the presidency from which he had resigned in February.
The motion had the support of the opposition Tahoeraa Huiraatira, a number of outer island MPs and Mr Tong Sang’s To Tatou Aia.
He is now to form the territory’s fifth government since last year’s early general election.
The change of administration comes amid deepening economic problems and disagreements over how to finalise the budget
