The New Zealand Maori Internet Society (NZMIS) has welcomed David Cunliffe’s decision to take the Information and Communications portfolio, saying he has been a long time supporter of Māori ICT and community initiatives, while also having a lot of respect within the general ICT community.

Māori have been largely ignored in recent years with Māori ICT initiatives, with perhaps the most significant social/economic impacts for Māori being with the non-allocation of spectrum and the oversight of Māori communities with UFB and Fibre roll outs.

NZMIS spokesperson Karaitiana Taiuru said NZMIS are looking forward to again working with David Cunliffe and acknowledges the good work of the former ICT spokesperson Clare Curran.

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>>
