Te Atiawa settlement vote passes
Ratification of Te Atiawa's deed of settlement has passed with the support of 77 percent of those who voted, clearing the way for the deed to be signed this Saturday.
Te Atiawa Iwi Authority says 40 percent of the 5300 eligible electors took part in the vote.
Saturday's signing ceremony will be held at Te Wananga o Aotearoa's Rangiatea campus in New Plymouth, because marae in the area refused to host the event.
