NZ's Pasifika urged to use the power of their vote

From , 5:03 am on 23 August 2017

A Pacific business leader in New Zealand says Pasifika people don't realise the power of their vote under the country's proportional voting system, known as MMP.
Wellington entrepeneur and philanthropist John Fiso  says if all Pasifika people voted for a Pasifika party, it would meet the 5% threshold and hold the balance of power.

Mr Fiso  says  Pasifika people can have a more effective political voice in New Zealand and he told Laree Taula about a movement he's started called the Coalition of the Willing.
