Political Scandals in New Zealand

Posted on: Mon 26 Jun 2017

New Zealand’s two major political parties, the Nationals and Labour have been rocked by scandals in the past week.

24-year-old Nationals MP Todd Barclay is facing pressure to step down from his position after it was revealed he had secretly recorded a former staff member.

Meanwhile, the Labour Party is also in hot water, after what was supposed to be a “high powered learning” program involving foreign students, went awry.

NZ Correspondent Pearl Little from 95bFM joined our host, Jennie Lenman to tell us more about these scandals.
