Ka rawe Marama Davidson

Ka rawe Marama Davidson

The Māori Party is delighted to congratulate Marama Davidson as the new co-leader of the Green Party.

“With the Māori Party no longer in the House the need for an independent Māori voice has never been greater,” said Māori Party president Che Wilson.

“While we celebrate that every political party in the House now has Māori leadership at the highest level, the acid test will be to see tangible measures of progress for whānau Māori in every portfolio.

"The May Budget will be the first opportunity to see specific, meaningful investments. Māori are certainly watching to see substantial gains in the things that matter.

“Marama comes to her position, unhindered by the constraints of the Cabinet Manual and in that respect we hope to see some strong critique around the government’s investment in whare, whenua and whānau and the realm of issues impacting on whānau, hapu and iwi.

“We look forward to working with her to consolidate the independent voice for Māori inside and outside of parliament.”
