Tainui on the road to rule changes

The chair of Tainui's Executive Board wants to see reform of the tribe's governing bodies.

The parliament, Te Kauhanganui, has sacked its Chair Tania Martin and lost her deputy Bill Takerei, and the members of the Executive, Te Ara Taura, are also facing calls to stand aside.

Tom Roa says it's time to get the waka back on an even keel - and that may mean changing the rules.

"It's a high priority for us but it requires proper timing and a robustness in the process of checking through the constitution, checking through the rules, so constitutional change must happen, rule change, rule reviews must happen," he says.

Mr Roa says the immediate priority is to get through next month's annual meeting, where Te Ara Taura will report on progress and Te Kauhanganui will elect a new chair.
