Mana Movement officially registered | The Stuff

1 min read

Hone Harawira’s new party has been officially registered and if he wins the Te Tai Tokerau by-election tomorrow night he will return to Parliament as Mana Party leader.

Harawira formed Mana after splitting with the Maori Party but risked the embarrassment of returning as an independent after applying for registration just two months out from tomorrow’s by-election.

The process takes six-to-eight weeks.

The Electoral Commission this afternoon confirmed Mana’s registration and said it had considered all the issues raised by the public, including possible confusion over the name.

“Although there is a remote possibility of confusing or misleading a small number of electors in the Mana electorate this falls short of the statutory test for refusal of registration of a political party,” the Commission’s board said.

The announcement means Harawira will be able to claim more funding as the leader of a party than as an independent MP.

The Tai Tokerau by-election candidates had one last face-off this afternoon before polling booths open tomorrow.

Almost 1400 special votes had been cast by Thursday night.

  1. I know this website gives quality depending posts and additional data, is there any other site which presents these information in quality?

  2. Companies have expanded & considerably improved because the increase in technologies have drastically improved the daily running of each office & organization. People tend to really like you, simply for who you are. My Gift had to be in the Oil Industry, after all I spent already a third of my life becoming a Petroleum Engineer and then working as one.
