MANA and TE HAMUA on the rise

Hone Harawira
MANA Leader and MP for Te Tai Tokerau

27th May 2013

MANA and TE HAMUA on the rise

“Last night’s TVNZ poll confirms what we’ve been hearing on the streets for months” said MANA Leader and MP for Te Tai Tokerau Hone Harawira. “That MANA is on the up”.

“MANA’s appeal is simple because our policies are simple – feed the kids, jobs for mum and dad and decent housing for the whanau. Those are the issues our people face every day and that’s our focus – simple solutions to everyday problems. And clearly that’s what people have responded to”.

“The poll also said that if there was an election today, MANA would go back into the house with two seats”.

“That’s great news for our Ikaroa Rawhiti candidate Te Hamua Nikora because he’s primed and ready to go. Te Hamua is well known, he’s known to speak from the heart, he’s got a great sense of humour (essential in this job!) and he connects easily with ordinary people”.

“If the TVNZ poll holds true, Parliament will be rockin’ with Te Hamua in just over a month. Can’t wait!”
