This submission sets out the Local Government Sector Committee's response to the Local Government Electoral Legislation and Māori Wards and Māori Constituencies Amendment Bill.

We strongly oppose this Bill.

The PSA supported the 2021 Local Electoral (Māori Wards and Māori Constituencies) Amendment Bill that repealed the mechanism that allowed for a plebiscite to overturn a council recommendation to establish a Māori ward. We are disappointed to see the current Government attempting to reverse what was a positive step forward in Māori representation in local government.
