2.       The Manukau Harbour Forum must elect a member to the Chairperson position in accordance with Schedule 7, clause 25 of the Act, noting that no member has a casting vote.

3.       The Manukau Harbour Forum will need to determine (by resolution) what method they will apply to elect the chairperson – System A or System B.

Schedule 7, Part 1, Clause 25 of the Local Government Act 2002 states that:

25           Voting systems for certain appointments

(1)             This clause applies to -

(a)     the election or appointment of the chairperson and deputy chairperson of a regional council; and

(b)   the election or appointment of the deputy mayor; and

(c)     the election or appointment of the chairperson and deputy chairperson of a committee; and

(d)   the election or appointment of a representative of a local authority.

(2)     If this clause applies, a local authority or a committee (if the local authority has so directed) must determine by resolution that a person be elected or appointed by using one of the following systems of voting:

(a)   the voting system in subclause (3) (system A):

(b)   the voting system in subclause (4) (system B).

(3) System A -

(a)     requires that a person is elected or appointed if he or she receives the votes of a majority of the members of the local authority or committee present and voting; and

(b)   has the following characteristics:

(i)       there is a first round of voting for all candidates; and

(ii)      if no candidate is successful in that round there is a   second round of voting from which the candidate with the fewest votes in the first round is excluded; and

(iii)     if no candidate is successful in the second round there is a third, and if necessary subsequent, round of voting from which, each time, the candidate with the fewest votes in the previous round is excluded; and

(iv)    in any round of voting, if 2 or more candidates tie for the lowest number of votes, the person excluded from the next round is resolved by lot.

 

(4)   System B -

(a)     requires that a person is elected or appointed if he or she receives more votes than any other candidate; and

(b)     has the following characteristics:

(i)      there is only 1 round of voting; and

(ii)      if 2 or more candidates tie for the most votes, the tie is resolved by lot.

 

Recommendation

That the Manukau Harbour Forum:

a)      elect a chairperson for the 2016-2019 political term, utilising either System A or System B of Schedule 7, Part 1, Clause 25 of the Local Government Act 2002.
