We understand that the power base within Te Runanga O Ngai Tahu has shifted. Mark Solomon, in the past, has been able to count on a 50/50 split - nine members on his side - nine against. His casting vote has always given him the power. There are some new faces at the table now and the numbers have shifted. So Solomon doesn't have the numbers any more.

The next few months are going to prove very challenging for the tribe.

about time, we await eagerly the tribe dispersing its income or asset wealth amongst
individual Ngai Tahu, I think not, tribal rules,

lets celebrate once the door has been closed on the bad reign of power,not before.

lets hope people stand up this time and say "your out!" And not be fearfull of imaginery maori protocols on how to treat whanau, or be fooled or delays of the inevitable by kindergarden excuses ,and "im so sorry,lets work forward together as family".

this is the end
