Greens put Maori lens on policy prescriptions
Greens co-leader James Shaw says the party is attempting to measure its policies against how they will affect Māori.
The party has identified six priorities for the election, including housing, transport, income support, energy, protecting the oceans, and climate change.
"In every single one of those policy packages there is a significant focus on honouring Te Tiriti and making sure the solutions we propose advance Māori interests specifically," he says.
Ms Shaw says that means for example a greater emphasis on papakainga housing than in previous housing policies.
