Maori Party co-leader Tariana Turia says Hone Harawira’s new party could be more of a threat to the Greens than to his former colleagues.

Mrs Turia says it’s tragic the Tai Tokerau MP is talking about setting a party of the left, rather than one based on kaupapa or tikanga.

I think that his party could have a huge impact on the Greens who of course are the most left wing party who do work quite hard to address what we would consider are left-wing issues, she says.

Mrs Turia says it has taken years for Maori to be able to sit at the table with Government to advance their aspirations.
