Pacific Voices Wanted for Advisory Group

25 September 2014

The Pacific Advisory Group by-election nominations are now open for candidates from Tuvalu, Melanesia, and Micronesia.

Pacific woman performer.

The by-election is being held as representatives from Melanesia and Micronesia have recently been introduced to the group, and there were no candidates nominated for Tuvalu in the main election in April or the by-election in May. There are two seats for Tuvalu, and one each for Melanesia and Micronesia.

To be eligible to stand for election, candidates must be nominated to represent the Pacific Island of their descent, and people who want to nominate candidates must be of the same Pacific Island descent as the candidate they nominate. Candidates and nominators must also be enrolled to vote in Wellington City Council elections. Pick up nomination forms from our Wakefield Street offices or online at Pacific Advisory Group By-elections.

Completed nominations must be in the hands of the Pacific Election Coordinator by 12 noon, Wednesday 8 October. The by-elections take place on Wednesday 15 October under the supervision of the Council Electoral Officer. For more information visit Pacific Advisory Group or phone us on (04) 499 4444.
