New Zealand is likely to offer a multimillion-dollar assistance package to Samoa in the wake of Cyclone Evan, Prime Minister John Key told Firstline this morning. 

Fiji had also made a formal request to New Zealand for assistance overnight and the Government would be considering that request.

Samoa's Government has estimated the damage could cost $200 million and has called on the international community to help.

Where do you stand on political coat-tail riding?

If it gets marginalised voices into Parliament, I'm for it.

I'm against it - if you don't get the votes, you shouldn't be there.

It's just part of the political game.
