MĀORI PARTY RAISES LEVEL 4 ALARM
The Māori Party wants to be included in a cabinet of national unity to manage the COVID-19 crisis.
It’s one of four demands it made today in response to the community outbreak in Auckland.
Co-leader John Tamihere says it also wants the election moved to 2021, the borders to be closed for 14 days, even for New Zealanders returning home, and for te ao Māori to move immediately into Level 4 conditions.
That would mean ceasing work outside the home for non-essential workers and reimposing checkpoints at tribal boundaries.......
