The Maori Party has chosen to end its first month in Parliament, with a clear statement of intention, to uphold its commitment to be a strong and independent Maori voice in Parliament.

“We want to thank all political parties for their willingness to engage with the Maori Party and we look forward to making a positive contribution to the Parliament.”
