Supreme Court Will Not Rule on MRP Sale Before Feb 18


Supreme Court Will Not Rule on MRP Sale Before Feb 18


NEW ZEALAND MAORI COUNCIL

MEDIA RELEASE

The New Zealand Maori Council acknowledges the Minute of the Supreme Court issued this afternoon.

Donna Hall, lawyer for the Council, says the Court advised that the judgment of the Court will not be delivered by 18 February and that the court anticipates being able to deliver judgment by the end of February.

Ms Hall says the New Zealand Maori Council is seeking to preserve the protections of Maori cultural and economic proprietary interests in water, as it has for twenty years.

She trusts that the Crown will not be moved to any precipitous action for the sake of another 10 days or so, and looks forward to the decision in due course.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
