What is a representation model?
A representation model sets out who can run for elections to the governance Board, and how iwi members can vote to choose their representatives.
Under the Rūnanga’s current representation model, each iwi member is affiliated with a Takiwā. The members of each Takiwā may nominate and vote to elect a Trustee to represent them and broader Ngāpuhi interests on the Rūnanga Board, for three-year terms.
A downloadable information pamphlet is available in the links panel on the left hand side of this page.
