Politics and current affairs

The overseas collectivity of Metropolitan France formally consists of three traditional kingdoms: Uvea (on the island of Wallis), Alo and Sigave (on Futuna). However, its administration lies in the hands of a Prefect who represents central government, assisted by a Territorial Assembly of 20 members, elected for five years, and a Territorial Council (six members). It is represented in Paris by one deputy and one senator.

Geography.
The collectivity comprises the groups of the Wallis Islands (159 km², 9207 inhabitants in 2008) and the Horn Islands (115 km², 4238 pop. in 2008), situated in the south-west Pacific Ocean, between the Fiji, Tuvalu and Samoa. The main islands are Uvea in the Wallis Islands, Futuna (64 km²) and Alofi (uninhabited) in the Horn Islands.
