Takapuna Community Election

Takapuna Community Election

As a result of the death of Mr Wayne Tisdall on 3 October 2006, an extraordinary vacancy exists in the office of an elected member of the Takapuna Community Board.

Given the extraordinary vacancy occurred more than 12 months before the next triennial general election (13 October 2007), the vacancy must be filled by an election.

As Council became aware of the vacancy "in the period that begins on 28 September in any year and ends with the close of 20 November in that year, the polling day for the election must be a day not earlier than 10 February in the following year". In view of this provision of the Local Electoral Act 2001, polling day will be Saturday, 10 February 2007.

The election will be conducted by postal voting using the First Past the Post system.

Nominations will open on Friday, 24 November 2006 and will close with Electoral Officer Peter McArthur at 12 noon on Friday, 22 December 2006.

The anticipated cost of the election is $60,000.

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal. This is because it is going to be implemented earlier and faster, including retrospective rebates from April 2023. More

Green Party: Petition To Save Oil & Gas Ban

“The new Government’s plan to expand oil and gas exploration is as dangerous as it is unscientific. Whatever you think about the new government, there is simply no mandate to trash the climate. We need to come together to stop them,” says James Shaw. More

PSA: MFAT Must Reverse Decision To Remove Te Reo

MFAT's decision to remove te reo from correspondence before new Ministers are sworn in risks undermining the important progress the public sector has made in honouring te Tiriti. "We are very disappointed in what is a backward decision - it simply seems to be a Ministry bowing to the racist rhetoric we heard on the election campaign trail," says Marcia Puru. More
