NZCPR Weekly: Local Democracy2019

Dear NZCPR Reader,   

This week we review the local body elections and highlight some concerns – including a campaign to lower the voting age, our NZCPR Guest Commentator Gerry Eckhoff exposes the anti-democratic decision by the former Otago Regional Council to appoint unelected and unaccountable Ngai Tahu representatives with full voting rights onto the council committee dealing with freshwater allocation, and our poll asks whether you would support the voting age being lowered to 16.
