The Government passed a law on November 20 giving iwi organisations in Northland the right to stop vehicles travelling to the region.

The checkpoints will be under police supervision when the Auckland border opens on December 15.

New National leader Christopher Luxon has been up in Auckland visiting restaurants on the Auckland Viaduct.

He questioned why Auckland was in the Red setting on the first day of the Traffic Light System despite Auckland having the highest vaccination rates in the country.

Elsewhere, a new Roy Morgan poll has rated a National-Act-Maori coalition at 47 per cent, ahead of a Labour-Green coalition at 46.5 per cent.
