From: J Sullivan
Dear Minister of Justice,
Please provide copies of any and all correspondence by or on behalf of the then Minister of Justice Judith Collins, or any subsequent Ministers of Justice, their office or officials, concerning negotiations and discussions with parliamentary parties in response to, or following on from, that of the party leaders (and Brendan Horan’s) replies to the Minister’s letter of 25th March 2013 requesting their response to the recommendations provided to Minister Collins in the 29th October 2012 Report of the Electoral Commission on the MMP voting system.
Please include any subsequent correspondence, or any representations made to, or by, or on behalf of, any representative of a parliamentary political party or their staff, or between the Minister and officials and such, in furtherance of individual or cross party negotiations towards instituting the commission’s recommendations.
If no further negotiations or correspondence were entered into between any parties and the Minister of Justice Judith Collins, or subsequent Ministers and or ministry officials, then please provide copies of any ministerial correspondence or discussions on further engagement of the party leaders, or seeking to advance the implementation of the recommendations, as well as any relevant to the decision to discontinue consultations and negotiations, that decision itself, as well as its reasoning.
In addition, please include any copy of the Minister’s letter of 25th March sent to the NZ National party leader and their response, if any. If none was sent please provide confirmation of such as well as provide the reasons given for not doing so.
I would prefer to receive an electronic response.
If you require any clarification in order to assist in the consideration or fulfilment of this request then any responses will be automatically forwarded to me by the fyi.org.nz website.
