From Morning Report, 7:19 am on 5 February 2024

Māori leaders are promising a united front as they prepare to greet members of the coalition government at Waitangi Monday morning.

National, ACT and New Zealand First are set to arrive at the Treaty Grounds about 11 o'clock on Monday.

The scene was set over the weekend, as opposition parties, iwi leaders, and the Kiingatanga arrived on Te Whare Runanga.

Waitangi National Trust Board Chair Pita Tipene, who organises the annual commemorations, spoke to Corin Dann.
