The Electoral College was created by virtue of the Te Huarahi Tika Trust Deed. Its task is to appoint Trustees to Te Huarahi Tika Trust, between seven and fourteen in number, in accordance with the terms of the Trust Deed.
It takes advice from the Chairperson of Te Huarahi Tika Trust and their lawyers; but also sees itself as an independent supervisory body of national Māori organisations, which must respect the rights of all Māori in this block of electronic spectrum, and the claimants, and act as kaitiaki of their rights to development.
The College attends occasional joint hui with the trustees of Te Huarahi Tika Trust, for example their AGM, and has briefed the claimant groups fully on developments.
Members of the Electoral College are the New Zealand Māori Congress; NZ Māori Council; Te Kōhanga Reo National Trust; Te Tauihu o Ngā Wānanga; Te Rūnanga o Ngā Kura Kaupapa Māori, and the NZ Māori Women’s Welfare League.
