Internet MANA Gets the Numbers

INTERNET MANA

MEDIA RELEASE

Internet MANA Gets the Numbers

The Internet MANA alliance has signed up the number of members required to apply for registration with the Electoral Commission to contest the party vote at the General Election.

Political parties require a membership of 500 eligible voters – adult citizens and permanent residents – to gain registration.

The alliance of the Internet Party and the MANA Movement will see Internet MANA appear on ballot papers contesting the party vote. Each party will retain separate identities and candidates when contesting the electorate vote.

The Internet MANA alliance launched its website – www.internetmana.org.nz – on Wednesday to sign the 550 paid-up members required by the Electoral Commission.

Once the membership list has been checked and compiled internally, it will be submitted to the Electoral Commission. Confirmation of Internet MANA’s registration is expected to take four-to-six weeks.

Hone Harawira, MANA Movement leader and MP for Te Tai Tokerau, said the alliance had gained strong support from MANA’s membership.

“It will help us to build a wider voter base and increase our presence in Parliament without compromising any of our core policies and principles. Best of all, it will engage our young people in the political process and give them powerful say in how New Zealand should be governed.”

In contesting the party vote the Internet MANA alliance would be in a position to bring positive change – and real choice – to New Zealand’s political landscape.

“A party vote for Internet MANA means we’ll be able advance our policies and deliver the change New Zealand needs,” said Internet Party leader Laila Harré. “Every party vote for Internet MANA will make a difference.”
