Maori Party needs to consider Labour next time - Goff

6:10 am on 23 September 2010

Labour leader Phil Goff says the Maori Party needs to start listening to Maori voters and put a future coalition with Labour back on the table.

He told Waatea News that the meltdown of ACT and improving polling among other opposition parties means the next Government could well be a coalition of Labour, the Greens and New Zealand First.

Mr Goff said the Maori Party needed to face up to the fact National "hasn't delivered for Maori".

He also said the majority of Maori voters gave their party vote to Labour last election.
