New Caledonia's Congress has elected an 11-member government for a five-year term, but is yet to choose its president.
The government is made up of representatives of the four party lists which share the 11 positions in proportion to their number of seats in the Congress.
The anti-independence Future with Confidence coalition has five ministers, the two pro-independence lists have combined five ministers and the anti-independence Caledonia Together party has one seat.
The 11 ministers are now due to meet under the auspices of the French High Commissioner to elect a president.
If none of the 11 secures at least six votes, the new government won't be properly constituted and the old government will stay on in a caretaker mode.
In the lead-up to today's government election, none of the 11 was able to get the backing of at least six members.
