List of political parties in New Caledonia

This article is part of a series on the
politics and government of
New Caledonia

This article lists political parties in New Caledonia.

New Caledonia has a number of strong, well-developed political parties because of the use of proportional representation in the island's Congress.

The major issue dividing the parties is the question of independence. Parties supported by the French minority oppose independence, while the parties backed by the indigenous Kanaks support it.
