Prime Minister John Key was talking to Maori Party co-leaders last night to patch up a strain in the relationship after he bluntly vetoed Pita Sharples' wish to travel to Fiji as part of a Maori delegation.
Mr Key yesterday exercised his prime ministerial veto against Dr Sharples' plans to visit Fiji - a change of mind from Sunday when he said Dr Sharples could go in a personal capacity, or as leader of the Maori Party.
Maori Party MP Hone Harawira is now likely to go instead and the delegation will be led by the party's president Whatarangi Winiata.
