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.

National's 'alternative facts' when it comes to Water quality
MARTYN 'BOMBER' BRADBURY: It seems that with the Government's bold claim of making 90% of NZs rivers 'swimmable' by 2040, is more like Donald Trump's 'alternative facts' than true care about the state of our polluted rivers and lakes.

PAUL MOON: It was all going so well. The Maori Party looked revitalised, and heading into election year could claim successes in its flagship Whanau Ora programme, as well as being part of a government that has concluded some of the most important Treaty settlements in a generation.
