Saturday 23 September 2017 marks the New Zealand elections. Ahead of this date, TumekeFM spoke to Tamati Coffey, who is standing in the Waiariki Maori district for the Labour Party when voting takes place
Wiremu Huta Martin questioned Tamati on the way our country borrows money from around the world to run our own, the ways we are limited with the use of such money and asked how will Labour deal with it.
Coffey spoke about the way the spending of any founding has to be carefully planned and prioritised to specific areas of need.
He also spoke about the lack of housing available for the poorer section of our communities, and talks about how $40,000 is still not enough for house deposit with the bank.
His task though is to convince voters why they should vote for him instead of Te Ururoa Flavell the incumbent in Te Waiariki.
