First steps of the deputy, portraits of Wali Wahetra and Manuel Millar, z

What do the first days of the MP look like in our daily overview of the campaign before the parliamentary elections in New Caledonia? Portraits of Wali Wahetra and Manuel Millar. Five days before the first round, candidates answer questions from Internet users.

17 candidates entered the domestic part of this legislative campaign in 2022 in New Caledonia. As voters vote on Sunday, June 12, the candidates for the deputies organize the last meetings.

The first round of parliamentary elections is already this weekend. And in a fortnight, two of the 17 candidates will know if they should fly to Paris. The calendar of the Member’s first days is already on the Palais Bourbon. William Kromwell’s explanations.

On June 21, the deputies of the 2017-2022 mandate end their term. All newly elected members or those re-elected will then gather at the Palais Bourbon in Paris, the seat of the National Assembly. It then involves completing administrative formalities, settling in his office, or discovering the customs and traditions of the place. At this time, MEPs also form or join various political groups and are members of one of the eight commissions of the National Assembly.

It will be the opening of the 16th Legislature of the Fifth Republic on Tuesday, June 28, at exactly 3:00 p.m. The President of the National Assembly will also be elected on that day.

Members who did not join the parliamentary group, ie unregistered, will be placed on one of the eight standing committees the next day. On 30 June, the chair and group presidents shall decide on the distribution of seats in the Chamber, including non-attached members.

They will meet there a few days later at a general political speech by the head of government.

When the parliamentary elections are approaching, what would you like to ask the candidates? NC 1time launched this appeal in May on its Facebook page. The editors selected seven questions from feedback from Internet users. Six, which are addressed to all, and one, which is specific to each of the two constituencies. We posted the answers to the first two questions concerning the institutional future on our website on Tuesday: here and there.

She is a candidate of the FLNKS, separatists and nationalists, in the first constituency. Meet Wali Wahetra (52), who is entering the legislative race for the first time. Portrait with the signature Malia-Losa Falelavaki.

Walisaune Wahetra was born on April 6, 1970 in Wé, Lifou Island. His childhood took place in the Kedeigne tribe, in the district of Lössi. After school in Caillou, she went to France to continue her studies. The young woman obtained a degree in pedagogical sciences, a professional teaching diploma. When she returned, the school’s teacher, then the headmaster of the Dreh school, was a very active mother within her tribe and various associations.

Wali Wahetra is also the author of a book on arranged marriages entitled “Que la parole s’accomplisse”. He has been politically involved in Palik for years. In 2019, the teacher from Lifou was elected to the Assembly of the Isle of Provinces and to the Congress, where she is the Vice-Chairwoman of the Commission on Education and Culture.

As in 2017, Manuel Millar focuses on deputation. He is running again in the second constituency, without designation, and with Pelekualo Tuakoifenu as a substitute. Her portrait by Lizzie Carboni.

Manuel Millar, married to three children, first discovered New Caledonia in 1985 and quickly fell in love with it. He settled there permanently ten years later, once leaving his military career. Today, at the age of 65, he represents an atypical candidacy: this wand, a construction company manager, advocates using energy from the heart of Voh to fight the disasters of Caledonian society. The man is not in politics on the first try since 2017, he also ran in the second constituency, where he received 155 ballots in his name. He continued his senatorial elections in the same year and intends to do the same in 2023.
