Te Pati Maori to attend national hui

From Morning Report, 8:11 am on 19 January 2024

Thousands of people are expected to attend a national hui of unity at Turangawaewae Marae tomorrow.

Kiingi Tuheitia called for the hui late last year, citing concerns about the new coalition government's plans for Maori.

Prime Minister Christopher Luxon has decided to give it a miss, but among the attendees will be the 6-person strong Te Pati Maori caucus.

Te Pati Maori co-leader Debbie Ngarewa-Packer spoke to Charlotte Cook.
