Deed of Mandate Documents

The Te Rōpū o Tūhoronuku (Tūhoronuku) Deed of Mandate was submitted to the Crown on the 31st March 2012.

In order to strengthen the mandate, Tūhoronku have made amendments, and these are presented in the Te Rōpū o Tūhoronuku Addendum.  The Addendum supplements and amends the Tūhoronuku Deed of Mandate.  These two documents should be read together and should there be any inconsistencies between the two, the Addendum will have priority, otherwise the Deed of Mandate will continue to apply.

The following changes to the Deed of Mandate have been made in response to feedback received during the mandating process:

  • Amending the representation structure for Tūhoronuku, including;
    • - an increase in Hapū Representatives from 7 to 15
    • - Hapū Representatives elected on a regional basis by Mandated Hapū Kaikōrero.
    • - a reduction in Te Rūnanga Ā Iwi O Ngāpuhi Representatives from 2 to 1.
  • Setting out in more detail the election and replacement process for all representative positions.
  • Providing for an Independent Returning Officer to oversee the election process.
  • Providing for Tūhoronuku to become a separate legal entity from Te Rūnanga Ā Iwi O Ngāpuhi, to be known as Te Rōpū o Tūhoronuku Independent Mandated Authority.

Tūhoronuku consider these changes enhance the representation structure, transparency and accountability to Ngāpuhi of the mandated body.
