Election Aotearoa: Coalition Options

By Native Affairs

Māori Television’s exclusive political poll results are in and it’s a game changer. During Part Four of Māori Television’s exclusive Election Aotearoa leaders’ debate, we reveal which political parties have the support of Māori.

Forming the right coalition partner could make or break some parties. Presenters Oriini Kaipara and Heta Gardiner will be grilling the leaders about who they are willing to work with and discover who’s going to be a friend or a foe.

 “It’s been a crazy year in politics in this country,” says Kaipara. “Noone could have predicted that four leaders from four major political parties would quit! With Labour’s Jacinda-and-Kelvin factor coming into play, it’s created an exciting and intense election.”
