NZ Election 2020: Peeni Henare, Marama Davidson, John Tamihere go head-to-head in Tāmaki Makaurau debate

  • 15/09/2020

The Hui is hosting an election debate with the Tāmaki Makaurau electorate candidates on Tuesday night.

Labour MP Peeni Henare, Green Party co-leader Marama Davidson and Māori Party co-leader John Tamihere are going head-to-head as they vie to win the seat this election.

The Tāmaki Makaurau electorate is home to New Zealand's highest population of Māori in the country, as well as the largest number of iwi with the 2013 census citing 30 different tribes.

The electorate - formed in 2002 - was initially held by Tamihere before Pita Sharples of the Māori Party took it from 2005 to 2014. Henare has held the seat since 2014. Tamihere is back to contest the seat again, this time for the Māori Party.

The debate will begin at 8pm.
