It's now only 100 days until the general election in Aotearoa.
Some of the big issues Maori will consider when the country goes to the polls are expected to be:
- Health: It's always a big issue for Māori but Covid-19 has brought it even more into focus.
- Unemployment is also on the list, with Maori expected to be some of the worst-hit by job losses.
- Although police have said they won't be routinely armed, justice is still a major concern, with Maori prison rates still high.
- Ensuring children are protected is front of mind for all whanau given the Oranga Tamariki report.
