Politics and current affairs

An archipelago in the South Pacific Ocean, between the Phoenix Islands to the north and the Samoan Islands to the south, under New Zealand administration since 1948. It consists of the atolls of Fakaofo, Nukunonu and Atafu, while Swains Island (Olohenga) is part of the American Samoa Islands. Its single-chamber parliament has 20 members elected for three years. In 2006 and 2007, two self-government referendums failed to achieve the necessary majority.
