Will the stars align for a new public holiday?
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says she's listened to Kiwis and will make Matariki a public holiday from 2022 if re-elected.
"As I've travelled around New Zealand I've heard the calls for Matariki to become a public holiday - its time has come," the Labour Party leader says in a statement on Monday.
Matariki is the Māori name for the Pleaides star cluster, and its annual appearance mid-winter signals the start of Māori New Year.
