The Prime Minister is defending her government despite having to stand down two ministers in as many weeks.
Yesterday it was announced Meka Whaitiri has been stood aside pending a 'staffing' investigation.
Newshub understands she is accused of 'shoving' a press secretary who'd only been in the job for two weeks.
"I need to allow natural justice to apply here - so I won't be making any comment until that is completed," Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says.
But National leader Simon Bridges says the Prime Minister should act now.
"Tell you what I would do. Get them in, to know exactly what happened - and if there is violence, the minister would be gone."
Aside from the allegation of violence - Newshub understands there's been a high turnover of staff in her office.
The Ikaroa-Rawhiti MP usually has a roster of six ministerial staff - and at least five have gone in the past ten months.
This incident comes just a week after Minister Clare Curran was sacked from cabinet for having an undisclosed meeting
"I think it tops off an incompetent, shambolic few days for the Prime Minister - she needs to step up and take a lead on these issues," Mr Bridges says.
Despite the double-demotion - Ms Ardern says she still has confidence in her Ministers.
"Regardless of any incident - at any time - my expectations are high."
The Prime Minister will make a final decision on Ms Whaitiri once the investigation's complete.
And after accusations she was 'soft' on Clare Curran - she's facing pressure from the Opposition to resolve this latest problem, quickly.
