Te Kotahitanga o Nga Hapu Ngapuhi co-chair Pita Tipene is rejecting a poll showing 70 percent of Ngapuhi want mandated negotiating group Tuhoronuku to continue work on the tribe's treaty settlement.

The poll by Horizon Research was done by a combination of an internet panel and returns from people who attended hui put on by Tuhoronuku last month after Te kotahitanga refused to meet with it to chart a path ahead.

Tuhoronuku chair Hone Sadler says the result is consistent with previous surveys and shows iwi members are fed up with the actions of a small group which has blocked progress.

But Mr Tipene says the poll was a sham, and the hui were a failure with few people attending.

"It was largely the staff of Tuhoronuku, family members and supporters who filled in the paperwork so Tuhoronuku thinks the people of Ngapuhi are gullible I think is is the continuation of the type of leadership Ngapuhi has had enough of," he says.
