The draft deed of mandate sets out the claims covered by the mandate, those currently excluded, as well as the negotiation team structure and the process undertaken by the Negotiator to seek the mandate from the iwi.
On 25 May 2019, Te Whakakitenga o Waikato voted to approve the mandate of the Negotiator to negotiate the settlement of the remaining historical Treaty claims of Waikato-Tainui.
The draft deed of mandate reflects that Waikato-Tainui and the Crown hold different positions on claimant definition and the time limit for hapuu to join or withdraw from the mandate. Te Arawhiti publishing the draft deed of mandate is not an endorsement of Waikato-Tainui’s position on these matters. The letter in the attached files below is from Te Arawhiti to the Negotiator, it provides further information.
Te Arawhiti asks that you carefully consider the claimant definition and time limit for hapuu to join or withdraw from the mandate when making a submission.
