17.  What is the voting process?

Trust Board Reply:

Everyone who is registered will be sent an information pack after the Consultation Hui have concluded, asking for peoples’ views on the pathway forward. Your responses will shape the trust Board’s actions in the final negotiations and discussions with the Crown, which will inform the Deed of Settlement. Once the deed of Settlement is signed, everyone who is registered will be included in the vote for ratification of the Post-Settlement Governance options, and vote ‘yes’ or ‘no’ on the offer from the Crown. If the majority of the people vote ‘Yes’, the iwi and Crown will progress to settlement. If the majority of people vote ‘No’, the negotiations for WAI 116 will have to start all over again.
