How long does a president in French Polynesia serve for?

The stipulated term is 5 years, but the President is not directly elected in French Polynesia, which is a semi-autonomous overseas collectivity. The executive is chosen by, and can be removed by, the territorial assembly, as is the case for prime ministers in other parliamentary democracies. Until 2014, presidential terms due to no confidence votes in the Assembly have been as short as two to 11 months. The president in September, 2017 (Edouard Fritch) had served three years since 2014, while former president Oscar Temaru had FIVE short terms in office between 2004 and 2013, and was elected three times in one three-year period.
