Manurewa MP Louisa Wall wants to keep the selection of Maori Land Court judges in the hands of the Minister for Maori Development.

The Judicature Modernisation Bill now going through parliament will give the Attorney General the job of choosing judges for all courts.

Ms Wall says that overturns a long standing convention that Maori Land Court judges are appointed on the advice or recommendation of the Maori minister.

She has lodged a supplementary order paper requiring the Attorney General to seek that advice.

"It’s all about the mana of that position and the mana of our land and empowering our Maori land court judges to ensure that the administration of our land upholds the sacredness of whenua to us as Maori," says Louisa Wall.
