A useful note from NRT (we should have covered this last week).
The Constitutional Review launched its “Constitution Conversation” website [last Thursday], seeking submissions on key constitutional questions such as the length of the Parliamentary term, the role of the Treaty, and whether to entrench the Bill of Rights Act. These are questions we should all have an opinion on, because they affect the way our country is governed and how much of a say we have in it. And we should speak up about those opinions – because if we don’t, the politicians will take our silence as consent and write the rules to their own advantage, to give themselves more power with less accountability.
The website has a number of topic areas, on aspirations, the constitutional framework, the BORA, the Treaty etc. You can make a submission at the end of each topic page. Or you can make a general submission here. If you still do hardcopy, then there’s information on that here.
