MANA and Internet Party confirm plans to work together

MANA Movement and Internet Party confirm plans to work together
Hone Harawira, MANA Leader and MP for Te Tai Tokerau
Tuesday 27 May 2014

“This deal is good news for MANA” said Hone Harawira, MANA Leader and MP for Te Tai Tokerau, following the signing of an agreement for MANA and the Internet Party to enter into a formal alliance in the lead up to the general election. “It’ll help us connect with rangatahi and get more people out to vote, attract a wider voter base, and increase our presence in Parliament – all while holding firm to our policies.”

“And the best news of all is that working together will help us change the government – because there’ll be more MANA and Internet Party MPs to make sure that happens.

“It’s taken time to get to this point, but we wanted to give our members time to get their heads around what this alliance might mean, and I am pleased to advise that our Executive and our membership have voted overwhelmingly in favour of the alliance.”

MANA and the Internet Party will register a new joint party, Internet MANA, who will contest the party vote by submitting a joint party list. Hone Harawira is the leader of the new party and the Internet Party leader will be the Chairperson. MANA candidates will continue to stand in their respective electorate seats under the MANA banner.

The unkind might talk of sinking ships, others could be more reminded of a loaded revolver left on the desk by his Cabinet colleagues as they closed the door behind them, now that the polls in Ohariu had confirmed he was no longer of much use to National. More>>
