How do you think Māori will fare under Bill English's watch as Prime Minister? Here's what the National Party Leader had to say in today's Pōti 17 Series. "A relationship of respect - not agreement. So they've been able to achieve an awful lot with quite complex areas (such as) Māori language strategy, the big discussion about Te Ture Whenua, speeding up of the Treaty process, the Māori housing network, the various packages for addressing low incomes - particularly the family incomes package in this last budget, so yeah a lot of pressure, a lot of influence and a fair bit of disagreement.” – Bill English, New Zealand National Party #nzpol #Pōti17

Even after nine years in government with the Māori Party, the New Zealand National Party still sees the value of having them by its side. National leader Bill English told Te Karere that although the Māori Party have been very influential in government policies and have brought gains for Māori, they often don’t get the acknowledgement they deserve. Our political reporter Eruera Rerekura - Te Karere also spoke to Mr English about the acceleration of Treaty settlements under National and about their plans to build more homes.
