    NZ's newest MP following great great grandfather's footsteps

    Parliament's newest MP is following in the footsteps of her great great grandfather.


    Parliament's newest MP is following in the footsteps of her great great grandfather.

    Nicola Willis comes in on the National party list to replace Steven Joyce.

    She's used her maiden speech to relate her long association with Parliament.

    Archibald Willis was MP for Wanganui in 1893 when the House voted to give women the vote.

    Nicola Willis says her great great grandfather voted yes and she's following his feminist path.
