Strengthens democracy


Re: ‘We want to see equity', January 14 article.

Maori wards are a way of ensuring that every community is heard rather than majority rule through only geographic electorates. They are pro-democratic and operate on a one-person-one-vote principle using the Maori roll. They strengthen our democracy and honour the partnership of our founding document. So great to see the Gisborne council leading the way!
