With the Greens and the Māori Party winning last night in the Labour Party landslide of 2020, there needs to be some immediate strategic planning.
The Māori Party and the Greens need to meet and form a panel that can agree on a shared list of policies that would be passed within the first 100 days of the next Government.
Only a Labour Green Māori Party Government could be transformative.
With economic turmoil around the corner and the shifting generational dynamics now at play, Labour fear most an attack from the Left.
For Labour, they would want a coalition Government. 2023 is a generational shift in NZ politics when for the first time, Gen Xers + Millennials outnumber Boomers at the ballot box. The time to build a broad coalition Government tailored for this shifting dynamic is now.
The negotiating team for the Greens & MP meeting Labour should be Nandor, Sue Bradford, Laila Harre and a representative from the Maori Party.
The most aligned policy platform in the MMP spectrum is the Greens and Māori Party.
The Rubiks cube of MMP could produce a Labour+Green+Māori Party Government which would be the most progressive government in our lifetime.
This could produce the transformative change Jacinda promised in 2017.
The Greens and Māori Party need to be extremely strategic here. This is what everyone has been fighting for.
