The Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, says she’s impressed with a lot of the work being done by the Maori king and hopes they can work together.

Ms Arden met King Tuheitia at Turangawaewae Marae in Ngaruawahia today.

The king threw his weight behind the Maori Party in last year’s election, but after the loss said he would support the Government that Maori voters chose.

Ms Ardern says her concern is to build strong relationships regardless of where people’s political support may lie.

"We’ve a responsibility. We're in Government and our job is to make sure we represent people regardless of whether we have their support and the advocacy King Tuheitia is doing, particularly around justice, I support that kaupapa. We are on the same page," she says.
