Jacinda Ardern, Simon Bridges rule out working with Hannah Tamaki's Vision NZ

Even if Hannah Tamaki's Vision NZ Party makes it into Parliament, Newshub can reveal they will not be in government, because Jacinda Ardern and Simon Bridges have ruled it out. 

However, it hasn't stopped the Government from appointing Hannah Tamaki to a prestigious role: a Justice of the Peace - with Opposition leader Simon Bridges describing it as "bizarre". 

Newshub revealed Destiny Church's plans for a political party back in February on Waitangi Day. It was revealed church leader Brian Tamaki would take a step back, allowing his wife to lead the new party.

But there is nothing that will lead Tamaki's Vision NZ party into power, with neither of the major parties willing to work with her in government.

"That's just not a goer," Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern told Newshub. "I can't see how that would ever, ever work in a month of Sundays."

National leader Simon Bridges also says he would not work with Vision NZ, describing some of the things Tamaki has said as "wacky" and "bizarre".

Both political party leaders put it down to extreme differences with the Tamakis. And yet despite ruling out working with her, Labour has made Tamaki a Justice of the Peace.

"Oh, these aren't things that I have discretion over," the Prime Minister said, when asked if she is comfortable with her Government giving Tamaki the role.

Justices of the Peace (JPs) are community leaders with judicial powers such as overseeing some trials and performing citizenship ceremonies.

JPs have to be given the nod by their electorate MP - in Tamaki's case National's Judith Collins. But it's the Associate Minister of Justice - Labour's Aupito William Sio - who made the final call.

"It's bizarre, and you've just got to ask yourself, what was going through the minister's head here?" Bridges said.

Newshub asked the Prime Minister if she thinks Justices of the Peace should be upstanding members of the community.

"Oh look, there's certain expectations around the things that they do."

Earlier this year Hannah Tamaki re-tweeted a photoshopped picture of a Muslim woman's face on a shooting target.

"You'll know exactly how I feel about that behavior," Ardern said, when Newshub asked if that behaviour befits a Justice of the Peace.

To get into Parliament, Vision NZ would need 5 percent of the vote. Destiny Church has tried twice before and didn't even scratch 1 percent.

Both National and Labour have made it clear there's no way Hannah Tamaki will be in government. But thanks to both a National MP and a Labour minister, she is wielding power in the judiciary.
