I greet you in New Zealand’s first language: kia ora, nga mihi nui kia koutou, kia ora 

I think one of the most interesting part of the speeches here, is people's stories of how they were elected. 

I was a young father and six years ago at the age of 28 I was elected to the New Zealand Parliament, and held the role of the youngest MP. Now we have an even younger 25-year-old in our Parliament, but I joke I still hold the title of the youngest-looking member of Parliament.
