Internet Mana List Embodies Modern Aotearoa

Internet Mana List Embodies Modern Aotearoa New Zealand


An impressive mix of personal and professional skills, cultural backgrounds and ages marks the release of Internet MANA’s combined party list.

“Our list highlights the calibre of talent woven throughout Internet MANA,” said leader Hone Harawira. “It reflects the people of Aotearoa New Zealand in a modern context with a strong emphasis on our core kaupapa – the rights and aspirations of Maori, social justice and giving our young people opportunities to succeed.”

Candidates range in age from 23 (Beverley Ballantine, Internet Party) to 66 (Angeline Greensill, MANA). The 32-strong Internet MANA list is strongly representative of the country’s modern cultural mix, with Maori, Pasifika, Asian and Pakeha candidates.

Internet Party leader Laila Harré said the personal and professional skills of the candidates were Internet MANA’s greatest strength.

“We have people who have fought for social justice all their lives woven together with young people – the digital generation. Our list is unique in that it blends experience with a modern outlook on the very real issues facing New Zealand. The digital divide, the increasing gap between the haves and have-nots – we’ve brought together the people who are committed to putting things right and have the skills to do it.”

As component parties of the alliance, MANA has first, third and fourth positions on the combined list, while the Internet Party has second, fifth and sixth spots. All subsequent places are filled on an alternating basis.

Internet MANA will contest the party vote. Each party retains separate identities to contest electorate seats – MANA in the Maori seats and selected electorates and the Internet Party in other selected electorates. The parties will not compete against one another in any electorate.

MANA candidates Georgina Beyer (Te Tai Tonga), Jordan Winiata (Te Tai Hauāuru) and Kereama Pene (Tāmaki Makaurau) will contest electorate seats only.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
