fern frondRegistered members of each Hapu Karanga are entitled to stand for election or nominate another member to stand for election as the Trustee to represent their Hapu Karanga on the Trust.

If there are the same number of candidates nominated as positions available for a Hapu Karanga then it will not be necessary to hold an election for that Hapu Karanga and the candidate/s nominated will automatically be appointed as the Trustee/s.

If there are a greater number of nominations then an election will take place by postal ballot and at the Annual General Meeting to be held in October 2013.  The highest polling candidate/s will be appointed as the Trustee to represent each hapu karanga and the second highest polling candidate/s will be appointed as the alternate.
