The latest TVNZ Poll suggests the Greens and Māori Party should form an alliance.
The Greens hit 8% while the Māori Party got 2%. The chances are that Labour will require another Party to gain 51% in Parliament to form a Government come 2023 and it is that need that gives the Greens and the Māori Party real political leverage.
If the Greens & Māori Party held a hui to discuss the housing, poverty and climate crisis and agreed to a shared policy platform that binds them as a shared coalition option for Labour, they would capture the hope politics can inspire.
The crisis of the moment is larger than individual party egos and requires MMP strategic cooperation.
