Government commissioning of proposals to change constitution
When the government commissions a report seeking proposals which may impact on the constitution this should be made public and include public consultation in support of active citizenship and partnership of all New Zealanders.
Why the contribution is important
The constitution is the basis of our country and democracy. Any perceived review of this or how our constitution works lies at the heart of open government. This also applies if the government seeks to interpret or apply The Treaty in a new way.
