Greens keen to work with Peters
Greens co–leader Metiria Turei is looking forward to working with new Northland MP Winston Peters on issues they agree on.
She says on issues like opposition to the Government's radical overhaul of the Resource Management Act and concern over the secret Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement the parties are on the same page.
The New Zealand First leader has in the past disparaged the Greens, but Ms Turei says the parties work well on a project by project basis.
"We know Winston will do what is in Winston's best interest and sometimes it means working with us and sometimes not. Frankly I can live that. I understand better now how he operates and I don't think there are any serious problems between New Zealand First and the Greens," she says.
Metiria Turei says Winston Peters' Northland win should have shown national what happens when it stops listening to people.
