A day on the campaign trail with the Green’s Tamatha Paul

This election Ohinga spent a day on the campaign with Māori candidates from National, Labour, the Green Party and Te Pati Māori (we’re still waiting to hear back from ACT and NZ First) to learn about what motivates the candidates.

In the second episode of the Election Special, Ohinga spent a day traversing the capital with Green Party Wellington Central candidate Tamatha Paul. 

This is part of our reo Māori series, Ohinga, created by Mahi Tahi, with funding from Te Māngai Pāho. Stay tuned for the rest of the special Election series in the lead up to October 14 General Election.
