Tuhoronuku looks to strengthen mandate

The chair of Ngapuhi negotiating body Tuhoronuku, Hone Sadler, says the majority of tribe members back its work.

Tuhoronuku has been on the road since Prime Minister Bill English withdrew the crown from the process until after the election to give the opposing factions a chance to discuss a way ahead.

The last Let Ngapuhi Speak hui was held in Christchurch last night.

Mr Sadler rejects suggestions the mandate has frayed.

"The mandate is the mandate. We need to maintain that mandate but there will be improvements along the way. We've made improvements to the mandate with the three reports, the (Te Ropu) Whaiti Report, the (Jim) Bolger report, the Tukuroirangi Morgan report. We will also take out of the Maranga Mai report issues which need to be put into an addendum which strengthens that mandate," he says.

Hone Sadler says about 80 percent of people polled at each hui supported what Tuhoronuku was doing.
