Policy Statement

Our policy statement sets out what we're campaigning for. It sets out a proposed decision making process on how to become a republic including how the Head of State will be nominated and elected and what the powers of the Head of State will have.

The policy statement came about as a result of a remit at the 2011 AGM. In January 2012 the draft policy statement was circulated among members for consultation. Following further changes, we published the draft policy statement on Waitangi Day 2012 for public discussion. It was amended in 2013, 2014 and 2015.

Members are welcome to submit suggestions on how our policy can be improved and our policy statement may change slightly each year as new members join and contribute their ideas and expertise.
