Education before politics for Ohia
The Māori Party is on the hunt for a new vice president tāne after Bentham Ohia quit after just a month in the role to take up a public service position.
Mr Ohia, a former chief executive at Te Wānanga o Aotearoa, is the new chief advisor for iwi and Māori education relationships at the Ministry of Education.
Party president Che Wilson says the party’s short term loss is the people’s long-term gain as Mr Ohia can shape the government’s agenda of support for Māori education.
