15 April 2019
National Party Leader Simon Bridges has thanked retiring MP Nuk Korako for his hard work and dedication to the National Party after he announced his retirement today.
“Nuk Korako has been a valuable member of our caucus. He is highly regarded by his local community, his colleagues and Iwi.
“Nuk was instrumental as chair of the National Party Māori Caucus in developing Māori capability within the National Party. He established the regional Kahurangi National Māori Groups and will continue this work.
“As Chair of the Māori Affairs Select Committee Nuk has made a positive difference in the lives of Māori, including 16 Iwi by helping to bring their Treaty Settlements to a conclusion.
“Nuk has been a supportive leader in his community following devastating events like the Port Hills fires and the Christchurch terror attack. He will be missed immensely.
“I am sorry to see him announce his retirement from Parliament but I know he will stay actively involved in his community and the National Party.”
