John Minto's Message to Waiariki Voters

MANA Movement Candidate John Minto

Message to Waiariki Voters

Thursday 4th September

“The voters of the Waiariki electorate have one simple question to ask themselves – do they want a National or a Labour-led Government?” says MANA Movement co-vice President John Minto.

“If they vote for Te Ururoa Flavell then according to the latest 3 News Poll, the Maori Party’s support will be essential for a third-term National-led Government and on experience that will be willingly given.

“If they vote for Annette Sykes that will remove the Maori Party support for National and there is every chance Waiariki and the rest of New Zealand will enjoy a Labour-led Government”.

“Te Ururoa has not responded. It’s clear he will continue to prop-up a National-led Government while the overwhelming majority of Waiariki voters want a Labour-led Government.”

“It’s obvious a vote for Te Ururoa Flavell is a vote for National. The message to Waiariki voters is simple – if you want a change of Government, vote for Annette Sykes.
