French Polynesian Greens name French Senate candidates

10:17 am on 1 September 2008

The French Polynesian Greens have decided to present two candidates for the French senate election on September the 21st.

The party, which is only a minor force in the territory's political

scene, has chosen Jacky Bryant and Maxime Hauata who will

outline its policies during the week.

Mr Bryant has told the Tahitipresse news agency that he is not standing

to get a parliamentarian's immunity, adding that a senate seat is

something golden for those who have trouble with the judiciary.
