Harawira Calls for Apology From Labour

Harawira Calls for Apology From Labour
MANA leader and Tai Tokerau MP Hone Harawira
Tue 4 Aug 2014

“Yesterday I was shocked, dismayed and hurt, to hear that Kelvin Davis was secretly canvassing for funds from National to campaign against me” said MANA Leader and MP for Tai Tokerau, Hone Harawira.

“Today I am sad to hear that he refuses to acknowledge what he has done and refuses to apologise for his tactics”, said Harawira.

“We may be on different parties, but our people want this to be a campaign of ideas and values, our people do not want this to be the dirty and underhand campaign that Kelvin has made it into.”

“Since this story broke last night I have had heaps of calls from our people up north who are gutted by what Kelvin has done, and a lot of them are Labour voters.”

“Our people are really hurt by what Kelvin has done, and they are angry with him for not being man enough to apologise for it.”

“So I am asking the president of the Labour Party to issue an apology to my people in the Tai Tokerau for the dirty tricks campaign that Kelvin has been waging, and a formal declaration that it will not happen again.”
