Kaupapa: Tōrangapū, Kōwhiringa 2011

Hei te 26 o Whiringa-a-Rangi 2011 ka tū te kōwhiringa pōti mō te motu. Ko tēnei te wā mō tātou kātoa ki te whiriwhiri i te hunga hei ārahi i to tātou whenua o Aotearoa mō ngā tau e toru kei mua i a tātou.

Mena kāore anō koe kia whakauru i tō ingoa ki te Kōmihana Kōwhiringa, kātahi anō koe kia eke ki te tau 18 rānei, whakapā atu ki to rātou wharangi ipurangi ki reira whakauru i tō ingoa, ā, ki reira anō ka whiriwhiri koe mō te rēhita Māori, mō te rēhita auraki rānei. He tikanga ā ture tēnei o te whenua o Aotearoa kia whakauru te tangata pakeke ake i te 18 ngā tau.

E hia nei ngā roopu tōrangapū e kimi ana i tō pōtitanga i tēnei tau, arā, ko ngā mea kaitā nei, rongonui anō hoki, pēnei i a Nāhinara, Reipa, Kākāriki, Māori, ACT, Mana, Aotearoa Tuatahi. Ēngari e maha kē atu ngā roopu iti, pēnei i a United Future, a Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis, Libertarianz, OURNZ. Kei te wharangi ipurangi o te Kōmihana Kōwhiringa (Electoral Commission) te katoa o ngā roopu tōrangapū. Kei ia o ēnei roopu ngā momo kaupapa ka pāngia ki ngā āhuatanga katoa ō tātou ao. Te Ao Māori, te ao Tauira, te ao noho whare, te utu penihana, ngā take Tiriti aha atu aha atu.

Kei ia o ngā roopu tōrangapū ō rātou ake whārangi ipurangi, whakapā atu ki ēnei pae tukutuku mō te roanga o o rātou kaupapa, ā ki te mōhio anō ki ngā kaiwhakataetae o ia roopu anō hoki. Ko te tūtohutanga ki a koutou, kimihia i ngā kaupapa e kaingākau ana e koe, ā tirohia ko tēwhea o ngā roopu tōrangapū e whakaaro tahi ana kia koe.

He mea mīharo te kōwhiringa o te tau 2011 i te mea ka tū anō tētahi aronga ā iwi (referendum) mō te āhua o ngā kōwhiringa i ngā tau kei te eke mai. Ko te pātai matua o te aronga ā iwi nei, e kite ana mena e kaingākau ana te motu ki te MMP, e hiahia ranei ki te whakarerekē ki tikanga kē.

I te mea anō ka tū te kōwhiringa nei a muri i te mutunga o te tau o te whare wānanga, ākene pea ka wehe atu ētahi o tātou ki tāwāhi hararei ai, ā, ka hoki ki o mātou ake wā kainga, ēngari kei te pai, ka taea te tuku pōti motuhake i mua i to wehenga ki wāhi kē rānei.

He whakamōhiotanga anō ki te hunga kāore anō kia tuku pōti i mua, e rua ngā pōti kei ia o tātou, kotahi mō te tangata, te tuarua, te mea matua anō hoki ka tuku mō te roopu. Ka taea te wāwahi i aua pōti e rua, arā, ka taea e koe te whiriwhiri i tētahi kaiwhakataetae mai i tētahi roopu, ā, ka tuku pōti mō tētahi atu roopu mena kei te pīrangi. Ko te pōti-ā-roopu te mea hei whiriwhiri i te kāwanatanga mō ngā tau e toru e whai ake. Kei a koe te tikanga mō o whiriwhiringa, nō reira kaua e māharahara mena e maumau wā noa iho te pōti mō tētahi roopu iti, engari me pōti ka tika. Ka noho koe, kei mahue to roopu tautoko ki waho makariri ai.

Mō te roanga o ngā whakamarama, ki te whakauru i tō ingoa ki te Komihana Kōwhiringa, whakapā atu ki te wharangi ipurangi www.elections.org.nz. Kaua e wareware, he mīharo te kāwanatanga-ā-iwi (democracy), he tikanga hirahira anō te tuku pōti, whakamahia. Mānuka takoto, hikina, kawea, whakatau!

RED

: - SPONSORED - I have always thought that red was a sneaky, manipulative colour for Frank Jackson to choose in his Black and White Mary thought experiment. It is the colour of the most evocative emotions, love and hate, and symbolises some of the most intense human experiences, bi
