Labour has finally come off the fence and said it opposes the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
Until now the party has been ambivalent, complaining about some of the provisions in the 12-nation free trade agreement without objecting to it as a whole.
That has changed, and Labour leader Andrew Little says if he wins next year’s election his government will renegotiate it.
“I don’t support it, we don’t support it,” he told One News on Wednesday.
“Difficult as it is for us as a party that has for 80 years supported, championed and advance the cause of free trade, we see it as an agreement that cuts right across the rights of New Zealand citizens.”
