Waka-jumping bill will hurt NZ's reputation - National

From Morning Report, 7:43 am on 31 January 2018

The government's legislation - which passed its first reading on Tuesday night - is designed to prevent MPs from ditching their party for another party. But the Opposition says it will hurt the country's reputation.
