Ngai Tahu Election update

Not many changes

BB is still keeping quiet for 2 weeks until Hui a Tau

Richard has posted some strong information on his blog

Looks like we will get to a 9/9 split on the board - unless we get a vote of no-confidence from the floor at Hui a Tau, of course.

Any thoughts from you?

Kia ora Marty

Not sure where you get the numbers from? There have been some changes in Representatives but it has not been uniform in terms of who might support who.

There are clearly some new Representatives with utu on their minds who will have some supporters from the old days.

However not all of the new Representatives will have axes to grind and will make up their minds indpendently of historical shenagins.

It should be remembered that the vote to remove Wally was 11 in favour with 2 abstentions - that means there was no more than 5 folks who know why Wally was removed who were still prepared to support him.

Still, voicing our opinion at the hui-a-tau that we want all Reps to get on with the business is important.

Good points - and I agree about just getting on with the job, hopefully the message will get through at Hui a Tau. I am optimistic.

I think we should start a list of questions to be asked at the Hui-a-tau.
