Meet Kris

Hon Kris Faafoi was elected as the Member of Parliament for Mana in November 2010, following more than a decade working as a journalist at both TVNZ and the BBC.

He is now the Minister of Immigration, Broadcasting, Communications & Digital Media, Government Digital Services, Commerce and Consumer Affairs, as well as the Associate Housing Minister (Public Housing).

As Associate Housing Minister (public housing), Kris recognises the opportunity he had growing up in a state house – and will continue the work the Government has started because he wants every New Zealander to have a warm, dry home.

As the Minister of Commerce and Consumer Affairs, he’s committed to ensuring the wheels of commerce move smoothly and that New Zealand capitalises on every advantage it can to grow our economy, jobs wages and opportunities.

Kris lives in Porirua with his partner Mae and has three sons.
