Hone Harawira, MANA Leader and MP for Te Tai Tokerau

Thursday 19 June 2014

The announcement of the Internet Party’s candidates list today gets the full backing from Hone Harawira, MANA Leader and MP for Te Tai Tokerau.

“This announcement is great news for Internet MANA” said Hone Harawira.

“We’ve already chosen our first four candidates and we’re in the process of selecting the rest, but it’s good to see who we’re going to be working with in helping to build Internet MANA as a force in New Zealand politics.”

“Our aim as an alliance is to appeal to a broad range of voters, and the Internet Party list will certainly help us do that”

“I think these new faces will appeal to youth and attract people who previously haven’t bothered to vote, so I can see us growing our voter base and increasing our presence in parliament - and that will be good for MANA, the Internet Party and for the Internet MANA alliance.

“I know they were put through a pretty tough selection process and I have no doubt that Internet Party leader Laila Harre will be feeling really positive about the team she has behind her”

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
