Metiria Turei Battle

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:17 pm on 4 August 2017

The Green's co-leader Metria Turei has said she won't resign or step down as leader, but has ruled herself out of ministerial posts if the party helps form the next government.

She spoke to media at midday after more revelations came out about her personal circumstances when she was claiming a benefit - including the fact she used an address she no longer lived at in order to enrol in another electorate and that at the time of her claiming the domestic purpose benefit she was living with her mother.

The Co-host of RNZ political podcast, Caucus and the founder of the Pundit blogsite, Tim Watkin talks to Jesse about the bigger problems this creates for the Labour Party.
