New Caledonia's Congress has elected a new 11-member government.
The election was called because the Caledonia Together Party ministers had resigned to allow one of them to take up his newly secured seat in the French National Assembly.
As expected eight ministers have been reelected while three new men were chosen to the executive.
They are Nicolas Metzdorf, Christopher Gyges and Didier Poadyaliwane.
The Congress will now choose a new president, with Philippe Germain seeking re-election.
However, the new rifts within the anti-independence camp make his immediate re-election uncertain.
