Harawira wants Mana back in the house

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 19/06/2016

Hone Harawira has confirmed he'll stand in the Te Tai Tokerau seat in the 2017 general election.

"Maoridom needs a fighter... not just a backing vocalist about six rows back," Mr Harawira told TV3's The Hui programme on Sunday.

He applied for a recount of votes in Te Tai Tokerau at the last election but Labour's Kelvin Davis won it off him, with a majority of 743 votes.

Mr Harawira's Mana Party didn't win any seats in the last election.

"I'm not going in to win it back off him, I'm going in it to win the seat back for Mana because the people of Te Tai Tokerau deserve to have Mana back in the house," Mr Harawira said.
