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”
