The New Caledonian Referendum on Independence (Part 2): The Vote

Robertson, Scott


This In Brief outlines the main aspects of the referendum on independence in New Caledonia, officially called the ‘consultation on the exit of the Noumea Accord’. It considers the referendum question, its timing and the divisive matter of eligibility. Although these points are to a certain extent covered in Articles 216–222 of the 1999 Organic Law (OL) implementing the 1998 Noumea Accord, many details remain undecided and actively contested by local political leaders.
