Oppose Rotorua Council's 'interim' model of 1 Maori seat, 1 General seat and 8 At Large seats recommended to the Local Government Commission

Please sign this petition and share it with others so the results can be tabled at the Local Government Commission Hearings on 23 March. Giving the 19,791 citizens on the Māori Roll and the 51,618 citizens on the General Roll one seat each to vote for will give those on the Māori Roll over 2.6 times the voting power of those on the General Roll. This will violate the New Zealand Bill of Rights which gives each citizen the right to vote in genuine elections with each vote having the same voting power.
