Notice of Intention to Hold a Postal Ballot

“Amended Notice!”
It has come to our attention that the notice that was placed in the March issue of Te Pānui Rūnaka was incorrect. The March advert informed Te Taumutu Rūnanga members (and potential members) of the Rūnanga intention to conduct a postal ballot for the purposes of electing the members of the Rūnanga Appointment Committee.

This Appointment Committee is responsible for appointing the Representative and Alternate Representative of the Rūnanga to represent the interests of the Rūnanga at meetings of Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu. The March advert gave an incorrect date for when people must have become a member of the Rūnanga to vote in the postal ballot.

We now confirm that all persons who have established their entitlement to be members of the Rūnanga before 5pm on Sunday 1 May 2016 will receive voting papers for the postal ballot in accordance with the Rūnanga rules.
