On The Nation this weekend


This weekend on The Nation… With Labour lagging in the polls, what is its plan to win back voters? 3News political editor Patrick Gower speaks to Labour leader David Cunliffe live from the party’s congress in Wellington.

Then the Minister of Maori Affairs, Pita Sharples, talks to Lisa Owen about his achievements in Parliament, the future of the Maori Party, and its relationship with National.

And should the government be propping up private companies? Our reporter Lucy Warhurst takes a look at the political debate around corporate welfare.

We’ll discuss all this and more with our panel: political scientist Bryce Edwards, former Alliance MP and RadioLive host Willie Jackson, and PR consultant and former ACT staffer Trish Sherson.

The Nation on TV3, 9.30am Saturdays and 10am Sundays.
