Ngapuhi leaders were in Otara over the weekend to seek a man- date from Auckland members to represent them in treaty negotiations with the Crown. Treaty settlement entity Te Ropu o Tuhoronuku chairman Sonny Tau claims opposition groups were pulling people in off the street'' to vote. We got people that were regis- tering all sorts of names,'' he says. What they don't realise is those names have to be authenticated with the Census data and New Zealand Elections data. So if they're name isn't registered as a Ngapuhi then their vote doesn't count.'' According to the 2006 Census, 60 percent of 122,214 Ngapuhi descendants live in the greater Auckland area. An independent Horizon Research survey found 69 percent supported the Tuhoronuku man- date and a staggering 91 percent want a settlement negotiated. Mr Tau says he's under no illusion that Tuhoronuku faces opposition but scoffed at the dis- ruption to Saturday's voting. Members could not confirm who was behind the ruse but that it didn't matter anyway because the number of opposition was so small,'' he says. After 44 hui and talking to Ngapuhi over the last three years in Aotearoa, Sydney and Perth, we are finally ready. Mandate voting will give all Ngapuhi the opportunity to have their say.''
