The National, ACT and New Zealand First coalition government announced its coalition deal on Friday, and in the agreement is a pledge to repeal amendments to the Smokefree Environments and Regulated Products Act 1990 and regulations before March 2024. This decision would push back against legislation that works towards denicotisation, reducing retail outlets, and the goal of creating a smoke free generation. The decision comes as somewhat of a surprise, as the National Party’s Dr Shane Reti, who is set to be sworn in as the Minister for Health, has been vocal in his support of smokefree legislation in the past.

Health Coalition Aotearoa has released a briefing for the incoming government, and in it the group urges the government to implement the laws and reach the goal of Smokefree 2025. Rosetta spoke to Co-chair of the smoke-free expert advisory group for Health Coalition Aotearoa, and national tobacco advocacy lead for the national public health organisation Leitu Tufuga about the incoming coalition government’s decision to repeal a series of smoke-free legislation. They also discussed the disestablishment of the Māori Health Authority, as well as other health policies announced in the coalition agreements.

Amnesty International Aotearoa has published an open letter to Prime Minister Elect Christopher Luxon, calling on him and  the incoming government to demand a sustained ceasefire in Gaza. The letter has been published in collaboration with Action Station and Save The Children New Zealand and states that the current four-day humanitarian pause is not enough to address the “catastrophic suffering” and “horrifying harm to civilians”. The letter comes after weeks of protests across the country and little comment from the incoming government. 

Rosetta spoke to Amnesty International Aotearoa Executive Director Shaun Greaves about the letter, and what the groups would like to see from the incoming National, ACT, New Zealand First coalition government. They also spoke about the Labour Party’s call for a ceasefire, which many have critiqued as a delayed response.
