Greens co-leader Metiria Turei has identified education, poverty and housing as the most important issues for Māori voters this year.

Ms Turei says John Key’s opening speech to parliament yesterday, in which he spent almost half his time attacking the opposition parties, shows the Government has run out of ideas and is feeling the pressure.

She says policies which fail to deliver healthy and affordable housing is affecting the education of many Māori children.

"It is still the core to our development as a Māori nation. It is still the core to our ability for us to achieve tino rangatiratanga, for us to increase our wealth so our families are always well. It’s the answer to bringing our kids back from Australia. We need to have those basics here for them so they can live a decent life here," Ms Turei says.

He kaupapa nui te whakatūtū whare.

Ko te mātauranga, te tuakōkatanga me te whakatū whare ngā take nui hei āta whakaaroaro mā ngā kaipōti Māori i tēnei tau.
Koirā tā te kaiārahi i te rōpū Kakariki, tā Metiria Turei.

Hei tā Turei, mārakerake te kitea, i roto i te kauhau tuatahi ō te tau ā te peremia inanahi, kāore ia i te paku whai whakaaro ake ki aua take nui, nā te mea, i pau ke i ā ia te nuinga ō te wā mō tāna kahau, ki te whiu tao kupu whakahawea ki ngā rōpū āpitihana.

Hei tā Turei, nā te ngoikore ō tēnei Kāwanatanga ki te whakatū whare e taea ai e te Māori te hoko, kei te raruraru ngā tamariki Māori i te kura, nā te mea, kāore ō rātou whare pai hei hokinga ake mā rātou i muri i te kura.

Better address the 15,000 abortions carried out here annually for whatever reasons then. No mokopuna here just like a gay marriage.
