No Election Rule

In the event that there are only two (2) nominations, no election shall be necessary and the people nominated shall be deemed to have been duly appointed (Section 6.2 of Schedule 2 of the Charter).

Should no election be necessary the names of the appointed Trustees will be published in the Taranaki Daily News in December 2024.

Issues for Consideration

The selection of kaitiaki is an important matter for the Iwi. Kaitiaki are responsible for governing the collective interests of Ngāti Mutunga and representing Iwi interests in a number of different forums both within Taranaki and nationally.

Kaitiaki are responsible for managing our Taranaki-based collective assets and interests for the benefit of all Iwi members. This is still a large responsibility as we move from the initial stages of growth in our post-settlement development.

Should you consider yourself or another Ngāti Mutunga person a suitable candidate for Kaitiaki of Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Mutunga we welcome your nomination.
