Māori and Parliament: Diverse Strategies and Compromises

By Maria Bargh

Māori and Parliament: Diverse Strategies and Compromises

This book vividly depicts the strategies and tactics used by Māori politicians, their supporters and opposition to alter Parliament and the ways these have been adapted to New Zealand's changing political arrangements, particularly the Mixed Member Proportional system (MMP) or 'More Māori in Parliament'. New Zealand is the only country in the world where the indigenous people have particular electorates that represent them and where they can choose to be on a general or Māori electoral roll. Throughout history, Māori parliamentarians have looked to foster unity across party lines while still supporting different political loyalties.
