The Caledonian people has spoken:” No to independence” representing 56,4% of more than 80% of 174,154 registered voters is the official result of the election which took place yesterday. 43,6% have said ‘yes’ to independence.
The election took place in a very calm atmosphere giving the best opportunity to the Caledonian to make their choice yesterday.
At midday yesterday, official sources said participation rate was 41%.
This referendum was set to test the appeal of remaining a part of France, a vector of state subsidies but also, some feel, a kind of neglect.
At 10.55 pm last night, the President of France made a statement to confirm the victory of those who still want New Caledonia in France colony.
