Awatere Huata Congratulates New Minister
ACT today congratulated Maori MP Parekura Horomia on his appointment as the Government’s new Minister of Maori Affairs.
ACT’s Maori Affairs spokesman Donna Awatere Huata said the new Minister had a hard task ahead of him.
Ms Awatere Huata said Mr Horomia’s appointment was also an historic one.
“He Follows in the foot steps of Sir Apirana Ngata, a great Maori leader from Mr Horomia’s own tribe, Ngati Porou, and one of the most effective Minister’s this country’s ever seen.
“Mr Horomia has a big role to fill and I wish him well,” Ms Awatere Huata said.
