Te Arataura reaffirms Tukoroirangi Morgan as Chair

Te Arataura reaffirms Tukoroirangi Morgan as Chair

8 August 2011

Te Arataura – The executive board of Waikato-Tainui Te Kauhanganui Inc
– has today reaffirmed Tukoroirangi Morgan as its Chair.

Acting Chair Patience Te Ao said the rules of Te Kauhanganui are clear
that a resolution to oust the Chair needed to be supported by 50 percent
of marae.

“That threshold was not met when the vote was taken on Saturday,” Mrs
Te Ao said.

“Te Arataura took independent legal advice which confirmed its
interpretation of the rules, and a resolution passed to reaffirm Mr Morgan
as Chair,” she said.

Mrs Te Ao said the board hopes this brings the matter to a close.
“However, we will work hard with Te Kauhanganui to resolve any
outstanding matters.”
