Great start for Internet MANA

Great start for Internet MANA

Annette Sykes, MANA President
Thursday 19 June 2014

“Today’s poll is a great start for Internet MANA” says Annette Sykes, MANA President, “and we’re looking forward to that support building over the coming months.”

The poll showed 2.1% support for Internet MANA which would give the newly formed alliance three seats in Parliament.

“MANA members have spent the last week delivering 70,000 copies of MANA News to Maori voters in key areas and the feedback has been really positive, with lots of interest and enthusiasm for Internet MANA.”

“Turning that interest into votes is the key goal of our party vote campaign. It’s built around new, innovative ways to engage rangatahi and those who don’t usually vote - so needless to say it’s going to be a dynamic next few months.”
