The purpose of this chapter is to require accountability of elected officials in exercising the authority vested with them as a matter of public trust and to protect the Tribal membership from government decisions and actions resulting from, or affected by, undue influence or conflicts of interest. Elected officials must:
(a) Treat their positions as a matter of public trust, only using the power and resources of the Tribal office to advance Tribal interests and not to attain personal benefit or promote private gain;
(b) Ensure that the Tribal government is conducted openly and honestly and in a manner that allows the Tribal constituency to hold Tribal officials accountable for their actions;
(c) Abstain from using their office or position in a manner which could place, or appear to place, their personal interests before that of the Tribal government and its members.
