[6] The Local Government Commission, when deciding on the initial ward boundaries for Auckland Council governing body members, sought to achieve an appropriate balance between fair representation and recognising communities of interest.  It stated in its decision: “We received a number of submissions seeking more equal representation ratios for electing councillors across Auckland. We carefully considered options to achieve this in terms of closer compliance with the ‘+/-10% fair representation rule’ while still ensuring effective representation of communities of interest.”
