The general question remains:
Of which of your achievements in politics are you most proud?
For the two other questions we’ve gone with Higherstandard’s question:
Can you envisage a NZ when there is no need for Maori seats in parliamanent ?
and Daveo’s question:
Having an ethnic-based party makes a lot of sense when faced with a dominant settler majority often hostile to indigenous rights, but how do you intend to address the fundamental economic and class contradictions inherent in drawing support from both powerful Maori business interests and the large Maori working class?
While we haven’t been able to cover everything you asked we have emailed Turia a link to the questions post so she can have a look at your issues. We’re expecting to post her answers next Monday.
In the meantime, our next leader is the United Future’s Peter Dunne. You can place your questions for him in the comments section of this post. Reminder: tough but fair.
