Greens have to 'compromise' on waka-jumping bill - Marama Davidson

From Morning Report, 8:16 am on 27 July 2018

The Green Party is gritting its teeth and supporting a bill that would have prevented the success of its founding members. Known as the Waka Jumping Bill, it prevents MPs switching parties or striking out as an independent if they are ejected from their caucus. It's to pass with all-of-Government support, despite the Greens fierce historic opposition to the concept of it. To discuss the decision, Greens co-leader Marama Davidson joins Guyon Espiner in the studio.
