Maori Party co-leaders say they are pleased with their meeting with Prime Minister John Key at which they gained a pledge the Government would not legislate against any court decision upholding Maori rights and interests in water.

Tariana Turia and Pita Sharples had previously indicated the meeting was called to discuss Mr Key's comments which they said undermined the Waitangi Tribunal which is currently hearing the Maori Council's bid to halt the sale of Mighty River Power until Maori rights and interests in water are defined.

Should the Maori Party have split from the Govt over the water rights issue?
