Waatea News Column: The Māori Party is where 2023 election will be won or lost

The latest Curia Political Poll has the Māori Party on an incredibly high 3.7%. Their ability to attract a stronger and stronger Māori vote has been driven by a social media campaign that doubles as a trusted source of information and community.

Their ongoing political strength if carried through to the election could make the Māori Party the Queenmaker of any Labour/Green Government.

With so much at stake going into the 2023 election from the post Covid fallout to a looming economic recession, the focus must be on co-operation over co-governance if a united front of Labour, Greens and Māori Party is going to cross the 51% threshold.

This means broad based policy platforms like GST off food and vegetables alongside a 30% stakehold in the Supermarket duopoly run in association with Iwi players.

Shared value policy that can relate directly to the material well being of everyone who votes for it has to trump the implementation of pure ideology which can’t attract enough support to get over 51%.

In my opinion, a National/ACT Government would implement policy that would have deeply damaging impacts on the most economically vulnerable of our communities, the Māori Party, Greens and Labour must work together to ensure that damage doesn’t get elected.

Broadchurch policy over pure temple politics.

  1. Martyn, how do you rate the odds of getting “broadchurch politics” from a LINO-Green-MP coalition?

  2. The Natz shit pie of more of the same will be easier to gag on than the Labour/Greens/Maori rotten corpse of transformative change.
    I’ve never voted Natz and I’m not sure that I can but I am sure I can’t vote Labour.

    • Dwelling in modern living environments like flating, garages and cars has no value. That is all inflation. Access to government services and housing is fucking anti inflationary I can’t believe it isn’t sinking in!

      Like inflation and price are to different things.

  3. Great photo….But if they want to be taken seriously as a political party , they need to wear more hats….

  4. How about a hung/hanged parliament for 2023.

    Neither group of neoliberal can command a majority government that will have 60+1 seats in the house. Fuck all legislation if not any legislation will get passed.

    Winston enters the room.

  5. There’s a deliberately divisive and carefully orchestrated race war coming. Once that kicks off, the worlds richest will come in while side stepping the mayhem and take control of our AO/NZ and if we make a fuss we’ll be deported back to the burning, starving UK, Europe and the Pacific Islands as required.
    I can see AO/NZ becoming a no-go zone surrounded by terrestrial and non terrestrial ‘defence’ drones to protect the hyper riche as Musk and his father carry on with their breeding programs while we gauche morons punch it out in the ghetto back-streets of Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin and Invercargill.

    OK all you high-class AO/NZ women! You’re up for impregnating!

  6. Surely no one in New Zealand of sound mind could possibly want a coalition of Labour/Greens/Maori unless they are hell bent on destroying NZ which Labour have almost done single handed.

  7. LOL! Nope!
    The impending economic apocalypse created by both external factors and Labour incompetence will see them flushed down the dunny.

  8. Once again Labour have been shown up for not consulting Maori in a policy move . This time it was the new face recognition the Maori members of caucus must be on permanent mute. The Maori Party comprise of two showponies so not sure what they would bring to the betterment of all NZ citizens and the Greens have shown themselves up as small faction fight mob .
    Act and z National should be a shoe in

    • And ACT is not run by a show pony?
      Remember Dancing with the no Stars. Remember Seymours drunken boat entrance at the last election Trevor. An ACT and National low wage economy govt would mean people can’t afford shoes too bring in !

    Bomber yeah the Nat Nasties will be a little worse but it does not change the fact that it makes no difference.

    As long as the current parliamentary parties adhere to neo liberal orthodoxy centre or right nothing will change and you will still be writing posts in 2024 about how LINO , used to be Green and the Maoris have taken the perks and not delivered any progressive change whatsoever and how we have all been sold out by the treachery.

    Post 2023 will be business as usual with the same staged marketing camapign.
