Leadership Code of Conduct: 

Those elected to the positions of Leadership hold great responsibility for governing to the Nation, including financial management, policy development, planning and control systems for the benefit of the Nation and generally to manage the affairs of the Nation for the benefit of all its citizens;

The decisions of the elected Leadership must be honoured and respected by the Citizens of the Nation and the Citizens of the Nation must feel confident that the Leadership’s conduct is appropriate if they are to carry out their official duties;

In order to properly provide for the interests of the Nation as a whole, the Leadership must maintain high standards of conduct to reflect positively on the TRTFN. Leadership must comply by this Code of Conduct and avoid any action that could jeopardize their fitness for duty, or impair their effectiveness in dealing with other Nation officials, employees, officials of other governments, or the public.

The Leadership Code of Conduct was created to give both Leadership and Citizens some basic guidelines of the Conduct expected of Leaders.
