Election 2020: James Shaw on latest poll results

From Morning Report, 7:24 am on 29 September 2020

Three weeks out from the election and the latest political poll suggests the Green Party will play a key role in forming a new government.

Last night's Colmar Brunton poll put the Green Party at 7percent, giving them eight seats in Parliament.

With Labour polling at just 47 percent, it will turn to the Greens to form a majority.

Green Party co-leader James Shaw told Morning Report any decisions abut what roles Green Party MPs could take in a future government depend on a number of factors.

"It depends on the numbers, it depends on the shape of the agreement that we've got, it depends on the extent to which we think it can help us to advance the programme of work that we have," he said.
