A man has been charged with injuring with intent to injure after Green Party co-leader James Shaw was attacked on the street this morning.

The spokesman said the motivation for the attack was now unclear, and he did not believe there had been any specific mention of Shaw's ministerial or political work.

Mr Shaw has responded to queries about how he's doing, saying "it looks worse than it is". "We'll let you know more later today".

"I would like to acknowledge the members of the public who quickly came to Minister Shaw's assistance".

RNZ understands the man jumped out of a van and was shouting political comments aimed at Mr Shaw personally.

A 47-year-old man was arrested in relation to the assault.

"We understand members of the public have assisted the victim and we believe there may also be other witnesses to the incident", police said in a statement.

After being checked by ambulance staff, the minister - reportedly left with a bruised eye and grazes - attended a meeting in parliament and then admitted himself to a hospital for assessment, a party spokesman said.

"This morning's isolated and unprovoked attack has shaken us all". And we're all shaken.

Ms Davidson said she hoped the incident did not result in politicians requiring heightened security.

"I don't think one man's punch defines a nation's political discourse. At the moment, this was an individual, random attack".

Apple Music is Now Available on The Amazon Fire TV
The news of this upgrade comes as Apple recently announced it now has over 50 million subscribers to Music. Along with this music streaming plan, it's thought Apple could soon launch a similar service for video.

Shaw wasn't robbed, and the spokesman said it appeared to be an unprovoked attack.

National Leader Simon Bridges said on Twitter that violence was "never okay".

James Shaw was born in 1973.

Lawmakers of all political stripes expressed shock and concern over the incident.

"We stand entirely with him".

"I tried to encourage him to take whatever time he needed to recover", she said.

"My thoughts are with James and also [his partner] Annabel".

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said that "in New Zealand, you just don't expect these things to happen".

"We have an environment in New Zealand where politicians are accessible, and that's something we should feel proud of", Ms Ardern told reporters.

"We need to reflect upon what it is that is going on in society that causes people to be so extreme in their reactions to things they disagree with."
"But today's events really show we can not take that for granted", Ardern told reporters.

The United Nations Environment Assembly is now underway in Nairobi.
