Appointment to boards of newly created DHBs

16 Appointment of new DHB


If an Order in Council made under section 19(2) creates a new DHB by adding it to Schedule 1, the Minister may appoint persons to hold positions on the board of that DHB that would otherwise be held by elected members.


Section 29(2) applies with any necessary modifications to an appointment made under subclause (1).


Persons appointed under subclause (1) hold office until the 58th day after polling day for the next election of the DHB (subject to clauses 7 and 8 of Schedule 3).


To avoid any doubt, for the purposes of subclause (1), the renaming of a DHB is not the creation of a new DHB.
