New Zealand First leader Winston Peters’ is under pressure following a racist comment.
Peters made the comment that “two Wongs don’t make a right” during his first speech of the 2014 political campaign.
Peters’ was referring to his belief that foreign people should not be allowed to buy property or land in New Zealand. This is one of New Zealand First’s policies.
The comment has been heavily criticized, especially by Race Relations commissioner Dame Susan Devoy.
She said that politicians making fun of an entire race of people wasn’t new but it was “disappointing and shameful New Zealand political leaders are still doing it in 2014”.
Devoy said around a third of complaints received by the Human Rights Commission in New Zealand related to racial discrimination.
