French Polynesian voters have completed the second round of the municipal elections by choosing mayors in towns such as Papeete and Arue.
Michel Buillard was re-elected in Papeete amid threats of electoral challenges following a bitter campaign.
In Arue, the long-term incumbent Philip Schyle lost to Teura Iriti who managed to secure the support of rival parties by declaring herself an apolitical candidate.
In the territorial assembly, she is a senior member of the Tahoeraa Huiraatira party.
A leading pro-independence politician Antony Geros has become the mayor of Paea.
In the first round in mid-March, several prominent politicians were re-elected as mayors by winning an outright majority.
They included the president Edouard Fritch in Pirae and the pro-independence leader Oscar Temaru in Faaa.
The first round was held just days after the first Covid-19 case was detected.
Paris then postponed the second round in all communes despite calls by Mr Fritch to proceed as scheduled one week later.
