Ma¯ori Electoral Option Reaches Halfway Point

The 4-month 2001 Ma¯ori Electoral Option has now reached the halfway point with 22,486 Ma¯ori electors taking the opportunity to enrol or change roll type. At this stage 9,658 Ma¯ori electors have changed from the General roll to the Ma¯ori roll; 3,747 from the Ma¯ori roll to the General roll; 7,394 new enrolments on the Ma¯ori roll; and 1,687 new electors who have identified themselves as Ma¯ori on the General roll.

New Zealand Post’s Electoral Enrolment Centre National Manager Murray Wicks reminded eligible Ma¯ori voters that the 2001 Ma¯ori Electoral Option was still on but would close on Wednesday 1 August 2001. He urged all eligible unenrolled Ma¯ori and all enrolled Ma¯ori who wanted to change roll types to fill in their forms and send them in quickly.

Eligible Ma¯ori voters who haven’t received an Option pack should contact the Centre on 0800 ENROL NOW (0800 36 76 56) or visit a Post Shop for an enrolment form which includes the roll type choice. Enrolment forms are also available on the elections website www.elections.org.nz.

Reportedly, Mahathir used the photo opportunity phase of the meeting – which usually involves just an exchange of smiles and pleasantries before the media is sent out of the room – to launch into matters of genuine substance.

By doing so, Mahathir usefully exposed how New Zealand is trying to make a virtue out of sitting on the fence over the South China Sea dispute. More>>
