Monarchist League welcomes Anand Satyanand as GG

Monarchist League welcomes Anand Satyanand as GG

Press Release
The Monarchist League of New Zealand Inc.
4 April 2006

The Monarchist League of New Zealand Inc. welcomes the announcement that Her Majesty The Queen has appointed Anand Satyanand, DCNZM as the next Governor-General of New Zealand. Mr Satyanand will replace Her Excellency Dame Silvia Cartwright in August.

A former District Court Judge and later Ombudsman, Judge Satyanand is a well-known and respected figure from the legal community. Most recently he has been registrar of pecuniary interests of Members of Parliament.

Anand Satyanand is likely to be the first representative of the Crown since Thomas Gore Browne, Governor 1855-1861, to not have a title when in office. His DCNZM is equivalent to a knighthood but lacks the style "Sir" which had originally belonged to the highest grade of the New Zealand Order of Merit. Perhaps this omission can be rectified.

It may also be noted that the appointment of Anand Satyanand as Governor-General was widely reported some weeks ago; evidence of an leak which ought to be investigated. Speculation as to the identity of a new Governor-General is probably inevitable and ultimately unrewarding but harmless; premature disclosure of their name is not however appropriate.
