Party People | Season 1 | Episode 3: Debates and Te Turu o te Wiki - Waiariki and Ikaroa Rāwhiti

From Party People, 5:30 pm on 27 September 2020

Election campaigning is now in full swing, our Party People tell us who they thought did well in the political debates this week, including who they think won when Jacinda and Judith went head to head.

They discuss the Cannabis referendum, weeding out the arguments for and against.  

Te turu o te wiki, or ngā turu - Waiariki and Ikaroa-Rāwhiti. Will the Waiariki results be much closer than people think? Who is following Parekura’s playbook in Ikaroa-Rāwhiti?

And from the Ngā Taonga Sound and Vision archives we hear about Māori representation in parliament from the man who once held the Eastern Māori seat, and sat in the Speaker’s chair. 

Join Mihingarangi Forbes, Shane Te Pou and Tau Henare for this week’s Party People Podcast.
