Children's Commissioner looking for Māori assistant commissioner

By Te Ao - Māori News

The Children's Commissioner is to hire a Māoria assistant commissioner.

Commissioner Andrew Becroft says while he would like the role to be a co-commissioner role, a law change would have to be made to allow that.

However, he says the role would be effectively one of partnership with the commissioner. 

The New Zealand Māori Council is welcoming the commission's decision to create the role.
