Māori Party no set ally for National

From Morning Report, 7:34 am on 7 February 2020

The National Party may not be able to rely on partnering with the Māori Party after the election, even if that party is able to secure a seat to get itself back into Parliament. 

National Party leader Simon Bridges has talked about a resurgent Māori Party as a potential ally, but it may not have a willing partner with the President Che Wilson indicating a strong preference for Labour.
