    WWinston Peters is continuing his push to abolish Maori seats in Parliament

    WWinston Peters is continuing his push to abolish Maori seats in Parliament


    The Deputy Prime Minister says Maori can and should be equal in every area, and don't need separate electoral representation.

    All seven Maori electorates are currently held by the Labour Party.

    Peters told Sky News, academics and what he calls do-gooders continue to insist a separate roll is good for Maori.

    But he says Maori don't need a paternalistic, mollycoddling attitude - and showed that with their vote.

    Winston Peters says Parliament will have the option to vote for a referendum - his long-held position.
