Sabotage seen in Seymour priority code tweet
The Māori Party is calling out ACT leader David Seymour for trying to undermine efforts to increase Māori vaccination rates.
On Twitter this morning Mr Seymour shared a confidential email sent to Māori whānau including a priority code Māori can use to receive the vaccine.
Te Pāti Māori co-leader Rawiri Waititi says he intentionally set out to sabotage a positive campaign aimed at saving the lives of the lowest vaccinated peoples in our country.
He says because the Government hasn’t delivered on its Māori vaccination plan, Māori organisations are getting creative about the way they can prioritise Māori while still delivering to all.
Mr Waititi says even in the midst of a pandemic, Mr Seymour and his party will not allow inequities to be addressed.’
