(Nov 02, 2007) Tokelau, a small country consisting of three islands in the Pacific Ocean, has rejected proposed independence in a United Nations-observed referendum. A two-thirds majority of voters was required for Tokelau to move from a dependent territory to self-government in free association with New Zealand. (Press Release, Rt. Hon Helen Clark, Tokelau Referendum Votes for Status Quo (Oct. 25, 2007), available at http://www.beehive.govt.nz/Print/PrintDocument.aspx?DocumentID=31098.)
