UnitedFuture supporters asked to back Hekia Parata
Dunne calls on UnitedFuture supporters to back Hekia Parata
UnitedFuture leader Peter Dunne is calling on the party’s voters in the Mana electorate to back National’s Hekia Parata in this weekend’s by-election.
UnitedFuture is not contesting the by-election, choosing instead to focus on next year’s General Election. The party attracted 458 electorate votes in Mana at the last election.
Mr Dunne said Mana deserves quality representation.
“The electorate has been extremely well served by Luamanuvao Winnie Laban over the last decade, and deserves an MP who can both meet her high standards, and really hit the ground running.
“Hekia Parata appeals as the candidate best able to fill Winnie Laban’s shoes, which is why I am recommending UnitedFuture supporters in Mana consider voting for her this weekend,” he said.
Mr Dunne said UnitedFuture will contest Mana at the General Election next year.
