Māori Representation

Māori Representation

The Panel recommends the Government:

  • notes the Panel’s advice that the current arrangements for the representation of Māori in Parliament should remain while the conversation continues
  • investigates how Māori representation in Parliament might be improved
  • investigates how local government processes and decision-making can better reflect the interests and views of tangata whenua and whether the processes can be made more consistent and effective
  • when conducting the investigation into representation in both Parliament and local government has regard to a range of options including Māori political structures, and local and international models
