VOTE HERE – PSGE Ratification

CLICK HERE TO VOTE on the proposed settlement entity for Ngati Maru (Taranaki)

NGĀTI MARU (TARANAKI) – RATIFICATION OF POST SETTLEMENT GOVERNANCE ENTITY

Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Maru is currently in direct negotiations with the Crown for the settlement of the historical claims of Ngāti Maru (Taranaki).  Although the Rūnanga is still working towards Deed of Settlement, it seeks to ratify the establishment of its Post Settlement Governance Entity (PSGE), prior to ratifying the Deed of Settlement.

The proposed PSGE is a private trust, named Te Kāhui Maru, which will receive and manage all Ngāti Maru (Taranaki) settlement assets on behalf of the iwi.  In order for the PSGE to receive the assets, the iwi must ratify the PSGE through a formal ratification process.  We now invite all members of Ngāti Maru (Taranaki) to participate in this process through attending information hui and voting on the following resolution:

I, as a member, of Ngāti Maru, agree that:

  • Te Kāhui Maru Trust will be the Post Settlement Governance Entity (“PSGE”) to receive and manage historical Treaty of Waitangi settlement redress on behalf of Ngāti Maru;
  • Te Kāhui Maru Trust receive a payment of $15 million on-account of the financial redress amount;
  • Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Maru will be dissolved by the settlement legislation; and
  • the assets and liabilities of Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Maru will be vested in the PSGE, Te Kāhui Maru Trust.

Voting packs have been sent to all registered members of Ngāti Maru (Taranaki) who are over the age of 18.

Voting Process

You did not need to attend the information hui to vote on the PSGE. All registered members of Ngāti Maru (Taranaki) who are over the age of 18 before the close of voting will receive a voting pack in the post. Votes can now be cast:

  • by post (by completing and returning the voting form)
  • online (using the information on your voting form)

If you are not yet a registered member, you can also vote by contacting the Independent Returning Officer on the free phone Election Hotline 0800 666 029 or iro@electionz.com for a special voting pack.  Alternatively, a special voting pack can be obtained at any of the ratification information hui.

Voting opened at 9.00am, Tuesday 3 April 2018 and closes at 5.00pm, Tuesday 1 May 2018.

Te Kahui Maru – 20 Questions
