New Zealand officials will head to the Pacific territory of Tokelau next month to monitor a referendum on its future.
The people of Tokelau will decide whether it should become a nation of self-government, in free association with New Zealand.
At the moment, Tokelau is administered by New Zealand.
A referendum in February last year failed to meet the required two-thirds majority to change the status of the territory.
The new referendum is set down for four days starting on October the 20th.
