Nuclear in Polynesia: The Hinamoeura Morgant-Cross resolution swept aside by Antony Geros

On Tuesday, July 2, Hinamoeura Morgant-Cross was to present a motion for a resolution aimed at clarifying the current texts on nuclear power. On this symbolic day commemorating the first nuclear test on the territory, she was hoping for support from her party for whom nuclear power is a priority. But elected representative Tavini discovered that her resolution had been withdrawn from the agenda…

It still doesn’t work. Tensions between elected representative Tavini Huiraatira and some members of her party, including the President of the Assembly of Polynesia Antony Geros, are palpable. On this symbolic day of July 2, commemoration of the first nuclear test in Polynesia, Hinamoeura Morgant-Cross presented a proposed resolution aimed at modifying the terms of the organic law and certain points governing the text on nuclear power.

She was finally hoping for some support from her party, which has been rejecting her proposals since the beginning of her term in the Polynesian Assembly. Last November, Hinamoeura wanted to “dust off” the institution by submitting a bill to limit the number of terms of office for representatives, one of Tavini Huiraatira’s campaign promises. Only two five-year terms: his project had obviously caused some gnashing of teeth. On July 2, it was his resolution on nuclear power that was withdrawn from the agenda of the Committee on Institutions, at the request, according to him, of Antony Geros and with the agreement of Allen Salmon, who replaced him at the head of the committee.

However, the elected official had received, she said, the support of Oscar Temaru, president of Tavini Huiraatira, via his collaborator. Tuesday evening, on our set, the outgoing deputy Mereana Reid-Arbelot had also expressed her support for the fight led by Hinamoeura and affirmed that in the event of victory in the legislative elections, and “when the Assembly has carefully studied the question“, she “would be happy to take up the issue and change the organic law if necessary.

“The deputy is precisely the relay of the Assembly of French Polynesia and the government of the Country in metropolitan France. I would support anything that goes in the direction of a better recognition of the nuclear fact, of the harmful consequences that it had on our fenua. When the Assembly has studied the question well, I will be happy when I am re-elected, to go and bring the question and to change the organic law if necessary.”

It seems that Antony Geros does not agree. Perhaps Hinamoeura Morgant-Cross’s wish to “depoliticize this fight“disturbs. The elected official says she is ready to work with the opposition parties on this issue, without distinction. She nevertheless confirmed that for the moment, she was still in agreement with the values ​​of her party, Tavini.
