WillieTe Aho the Technical advisor for Tuhoronuku is confident with Tuhono process

The technical advisor for mandated Ngāpuhi negotiating body Tūhoronuku is confident the vote for the evolved mandate will get over the line.

That's despite a vocal campaign by opponents throughout the consultation process run by Te Roopu
Tūhono, which included rangatira from Tūhoronuku and Te Kōtahitanga o Ngā Hapu Ngāpuhi.

Online voting and marae voting booths opened today, and there will be a series of hui over the next month to collect hapu endorsements, starting in Whangarei this evening.

The target is 75 percent of individuals and 72 of the 110 hapu.

Mr Te Aho says what he has heard at more than 100 hui over the past four months is it is time for the iwi to move forward.
