Hon Priyanca Radhakrishnan named new Minister for Disability Issues

The Hon Priyanca Radhakrishnan has been named as the new Minister for Disability Issues today, ahead of Hon Poto Williams’s departure from politics.

Minister Radhakrishnan spent her work life advocating on behalf of people whose voices are often unheard – survivors of domestic violence, and migrant workers who have been exploited.

Our Minister has worked with our diverse communities across Aotearoa. She is committed to ensuring that their voices are heard in Parliament and that they’re supported to thrive.

We would like to acknowledge the work of Hon Poto Williams in the disability space, including the launch of Whaikaha - Ministry of Disabled People.
