Maori Party co-leader Tariana Turia says the ban on discussing matters involving MP Hone Harawira comes from their party organisation.
Party president Pem Bird has announced a complete media ban until the disciplinary process for Mr Harawira is complete next week.
Mrs Turia says she's had nothing to do with that process or whether it needs to be open and accountable.
"To be honest with you, I haven't given it any thought given that I haven't been party to any of that process," she said.
