Candidates for HBRC Reminded to Get in Early

Potential candidates have only a few days to step forward for Hawke's Bay and be nominated for the 2013 local body elections.

Hawke's Bay Regional Council is encouraging candidates to get their forms in ahead of time to avoid the risk of missing out. The nomination process closes at noon on Friday 16 August.

At the local election on 12 October voters will bring in 9 councillors for 5 constituencies, one of these a newly re-established constituency for rural Hastings called Ngaruroro.

“Potential candidates are encouraged to not to leave their nominations to the last minute and ensure they triple check their forms,” says Electoral Officer Carol Gilbertson.

“Any errors must be corrected before the close of nominations, otherwise we are unable to accept the nomination - something which has happened in previous elections. We look forward to receiving nominations this week from locals who want to make a difference in their communities.”

The nomination process is straightforward. Anyone wanting to be a candidate for any of the Regional Council constituencies can obtain a nomination paper by:
• visiting any local authority office in the region
• phoning 06 835 9200 and request a form be posted
• downloading forms from the HBRC website: www.hbrc.govt.nz

Completed nomination papers can be returned by:
• handing the completed nomination paper into the HBRC Electoral Officer, or
• emailing the completed nomination paper, candidate profile statement, photograph and proof of having paid the $200 deposit, to the Electoral Officer, carol@hbrc.govt.nz

Nomination papers must be correctly completed and in the hands of the electoral officer or an electoral official by noon Friday, 16 August to be accepted.

At best, there was only an outside chance that the incoming Biden administration and the outgoing liberal regime of Iranian PM Hassan Rouhani could have revived the Iran anti-nuclear deal that Rouhani had negotiated in 2015 with Barack Obama.
