Te Tai Tokerau Party

Te Tai Tokerau Party


Last night at the Leadership Academy of Company A debate Clinton Dearlove announced the creation of a new political party supported by Whanau and Hapu.

The "Te Tai Tokerau Party" subject to Electoral Commission approval is a vehicle for Whanau and Hapu to support building healthy communities in the Te Tai Tokerau.


"Te Tai Tokerau is on the wrong side of social and economic statistics. We want to work with our Whanau and Hapu supporting, empowering, building capacity, developing community solutions, and implementing those community solutions together to build healthy communities here in Te Tai Tokerau"

and

"On the campaign trail the idea had been floated to give Maori an option of an independent local focused voice. The Kim Dotcom partnership with the Mana Party has caused concern in the electorate, combined with the decline of the Maori Party has opened up a space for our new party" said Mr Dearlove.


"We shall highly likely be registering the Party with the Electoral Commission post election building towards the 2017 election. Setting up the new Party allows all of our Te Tai Tokerau Whanau and Hapu where ever they reside, whichever roll they are on, they have an ability to support our kaupapa around building local healthy communities" said Mr Dearlove.
