'We don't need' electorate deal with Labour - Shaw

From Morning Report, 7:18 am on 18 August 2017

"We knew we were going to have a string of bad polls because of the messiness of the last couple of weeks and because of what everyone's calling the 'Jacinda effect'," James Shaw tells Susie Ferguson.

When asked about the possibility of seeking an electorate deal with Labour in places like Wellington Central or Rongotai, Mr Shaw said: "No we're not, and we don't need it."

He says the Greens will get back to their historical average of about 10 or 11 percent.
