Partial Revote Leads to Polynesian Impasse

Tahitipresse reports that the partial revote Sunday has not led to an obvious resolution of the political crisis that arose between the Ferdinand Marcos of Chiraqistani Polynesia, Gaston Flosse, and the coalition of Oscar Temaru, who favors eventual independence. It appears that the Temaru group doesn't have the votes to throw Flosse out, and Flosse doesn't have enough votes to pass anything.

There are apparently a few centrists whose positions are still up for grabs.

And all we need are a couple of gunboats to toss the weasels out.
