Last Wednesday National ruled out working with Te Paati Māori in any kind of coalition agreement.

National leader Christopher Luxon cited broad ideological differences, but some have raised concerns about his tweet where he implied Māori get more than one vote under MMP.

The final line of this tweet was “We believe New Zealand is one country with one standard of citizenship, meaning one person, one vote.”

In actual fact Māori do not get more votes than anyone else, Caeden looked into why this myth exists, where it came from, and the impacts it has on Māori.

They spoke to Māori Studies Professor and Te Rūnanga-ā-iwi o Ngāti Kahu chair Margaret Mutu.

The extreme weather system that is continuing to affect the North Island caused havoc throughout Tamaki Makaurau on Tuesday. The state of emergency declared in Auckland drew stark contrasts to the Auckland anniversary floods in January and Cyclone Gabrielle in February. 

Auckland Emergency Management, Civil Defence and Auckland Council sprung into action as the rains poured down throughout the city, with heavy rain warnings issued in north and west Auckland. 

As extreme weather events appear to become more frequent, do Aucklanders and management agencies need to reconsider how they react and deal with these situations? To receive input and analysis, whilst also determining how well agencies have responded to the recent weather, Andre Fa'aoso spoke with Doctor Lauren Vinnell, Lecturer of Emergency Management at Massey University.
