Greens vote for Government

Somewhat strange – NZPA reports the Government has won its first confidence vote 67 to 50 which has the Greens voting in favour and the Maori Party abstaining.

Yet the Greens had previously said they would abstain on confidence issues, after Labour shafted them in negotiations by making Winston and Peter Ministers, but not the Greens.

So why did the Greens vote in favour after indicating they would abstain?
