Wow, that post made me more confused than ever. haha.
I looked it up and here's what I found:
NZ is a shared Monarchy, or a constitutional Monarchy, and recognizes the Queen as the titular head.
It's got a set of statutes and, of course a Constitution. New Zealanders consider the Treaty of Waitangi
to be the Magna Carta
, and the
There's an Executive Council and the members are called 'The Ministers of the Crown. The Executive Council advises the Governor-General; it is the
counterpart to the Legislative Council, and there is a Parliment.
Sounds complicated. Best I could do though, not being a New Zealander.
