Recent events in New Caledonia have led to a significant deployment of French police forces to restore order following deadly riots and civil unrest. The situation in the capital, Noumea, remains tense, with parts of the territory reportedly 'out of state control.' The unrest stems from opposition to new voting rules proposed by the French government.

The heavy-handed response by French President Macron has raised concerns about potential implications for China's influence in the region. The escalating violence has sparked fears of a civil war, reminiscent of past clashes with French forces, and is intertwined with complex political and colonial legacies in the Pacific.

Macron’s response in French territory of New Caledonia risks helping China, analysts say

The heavy-handed response by French President Emmanuel Macron to civil unrest in New Caledonia could risk deepening French influence in the Pacific and help China expand its security ties in the region, according to Pacific analysts and officials. The riots were sparked by changes in voting rules that allowed more French residents to join electoral rolls in New Caledonia.
