NZCPR Weekly: Local Democracy Undermined

Dear NZCPR Reader,   

This week we expose how Local Government New Zealand is attempting to undermine local democracy by calling for the abolition of Maori ward petition rights, our NZCPR Guest Commentator Cr Mike Lally explains why the right to demand a referendum on the introduction of Maori wards is so important for local communities, and our poll asks whether you agree with LGNZ that the public's right to call for a binding referendum on Council proposals to establish Maori wards should be abolished.
