Waitangi claimants jubilant at Labour win

From Morning Report, 8:54 am on 20 October 2017

Labour of course won all the Maori seats so we sought some reaction. There was elation at Waitangi last night over New Zealand First's choice to go into government with Labour. Maori claimants from all over the north are at Waitangi for the last days of Tribunal hearings on the treaty grievances of Ngapuhi and other northern iwi. The co-chairs of the hapu alliance Te Kotahitanga - Pita Tipene and Rudy Taylor say Winston Peters and NZ First have made the right move for the north.
