Mair calls for Dotcomana Party resignations

Mair calls for Dotcomana Party resignations

The Maori Party is calling for the resignation of Mana Party president Annette Sykes and campaigner Sue Bradford.

"I actually respect the work these mana wahine do in their communities but if they have any integrity, then they will leave the Mana Party in protest of their party leader's silly plan to sell their soul to a man who has never done anything for Maori," said Maori Party co-vice president Ken Mair.

"I'd be extremely surprised if Annette and Sue allow their party to become Dotcomana because they aren't the type of people to lay down and let others exploit them.

"It is obvious to me that Hone ain't listening to them and that he would allow his party to be divided for the sake of dollars.

"If Hone isn't deterred by a money-bag who appears to cherish Nazi artefacts then I think he might have no hesitation hoping into bed with someone wearing a klu klux outfit. And that isn't something I think Annette and Sue would tolerate.

"Like all other political parties right now we're trying to raise campaign funds as well, but we'd never allow a donator to dictate to us what Dotcom is expecting of Mana - to ride into Parliament on the back of a Maori seat."
