It also means that the Greens cannot reject Labour on matters of trust and supply, but can adopt their own position on issues outside ministerial portfolios and areas of cooperation. “So I am very proud that we have a good mandate, because it shows that this is a cooperation agreement that is a win-win situation for the Greens, who are working productively with Labour and protecting our unique green voice.” Ardern and the co-leaders of the Greens will sign the cooperation agreement this morning at the Hive. Delegates learned yesterday afternoon of the content and nature of the agreement when Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern made it public. In most parliamentary democracies, Members of Parliament may propose a motion of confidence or not trust the government or the executive.

If a motion of no confidence or a motion of no confidence fails, the government will generally withdraw and allow other politicians to form a new government or declare an election.
Approval of the agreement means that James Shaw will remain Minister of Climate Change, but will also address the associated environment with a focus on biodiversity. The Greens will help the Labour government to present procedural motions in Parliament and committees and will not oppose issues of confidence and supply for the entire mandate of the next Parliament, which will give the Labour government greater stability in Parliament. Under the agreement, the Greens must support the government`s line in decisions in their portfolios, but they are also free to take a different position from that of the Labour Party. The agreement would also involve the Labour Party chairman and Green co-leaders meeting every six weeks to monitor progress in the areas of cooperation set out in the agreement. 42.
