Speculation over Maori Party's demise 'overstated'

Related

Speculation over the demise of the Maori Party is being dismissed as overstated.

That's the message from co-leader Tariana Turia in her opening speech to Parliament

She says the media's compulsive fascination in predicting the death of her party after just nine years of existence, seems premature.

Ms Turia says they're determined to survive as a party, as a movement, and as a people.
