Unelected Commissioners force a Maori ward onto Tauranga

Newshub reports:

ACT Party leader David Seymour has compared the Labour Government to the Chinese Communist Party in social media posts critical of local government moves in Tauranga.

Tauranga City Council commissioners – installed by the Government after significant governance issues were last year found at the Council – on Monday voted to establish a Māori ward.

It is appalling that unelected Commissioners would decide by themselves to change the electoral system used for Tauranga by introducing a race based ward.
