tahiti: flosse criticises office plurality

French Polynesia opposition leader Gaston Flosse has criticised an office "plurality" in an appointment made by the new government of Oscar Temaru. Flosse says Patrick Leboucher has been appointed as first secretary to President Temaru as well as chairman of the board of Air Tahiti Nui. Leboucher was one of several new general managers appointed by Temaru in the airline. Multiple positions are common in French politics, with both Temaru and Flosse holding mayoral posts on Tahiti as well as the presidency.
