The Stratford Press reports:

New Plymouth District Council has voted in favour of establishing a Maori ward for the 2016 local body elections.

The decision yesterday afternoon makes it the first district council in New Zealand to have a Maori ward.

Moments after the historic decision was made, councillor John McLeod handed in his resignation, effective immediately.

“I cannot work in any environment that has a belief in separatist values, based on race, creed or religion,” the letter stated.

A principled stand by Horse.
