Guest Post: Constitutional Change needs a Referendum
A guest post by Simon Lusk:
The current government has legislated constitutional change without
the consent of New Zealanders. They have promoted a move away from one
person one vote to a co governance system where Maori votes are worth
far more than Non Maori votes.
These changes have been made without our consent. The purpose of the
Citizens Initiated Referendum is to show the liberal elite in Wellington
they are out of step with what many New Zealanders think, and what may
be acceptable in government departments is not acceptable to a great
many of us in the rest of New Zealand.
The question that has been approved is:
“Should New Zealand implement a form of co-governance where 50%
of elected representatives to Parliament and local authorities
(including community boards and local boards) be elected by voters of
Māori descent, and 50% by non-Māori?”

Only signatures collected using this form will be accepted by the Clerk of the House.

Your support matters. We are fighting against the huge budget
of Government, Government Agencies and the disgraceful Public Interest
Journalism Fund that mandates media have to promote the Government’s
policies using your money. This is a David v Goliath battle where
Goliath has vast sums of taxpayer money to oppose what many of us think
is a fair & reasonable question to be put to the public.
of any size will allow us to fight back against the giant we oppose.
They will help us send a message to Wellington that they have moved too
far and too fast on co governance. They will help us tell Wellington
that making the vast majority of New Zealanders’ votes count less than
Maori votes is unacceptable to true democrats across our country.
