The Taxpayers Union has called for the Privacy Commissioner to investigate Te Pāti Māori allegations

Te Pāti Māori is facing allegations that personal information collected by a Manurewa marae during Covid immunisations was used for political campaigning. 

The marae was also controversially used as a polling booth in last year’s general election. 

Te Pāti Māori has denied the allegations. 

Taxpayers Union Executive Director, Jordan Williams, told Jack Tame “At the end of the day, this information isn’t in the government’s hands.” 

Williams said “The Census is such a core function of government – and public must have confidence that the data is protected.”
