Maori Party looking set to stand candidate against Harawira

1 min read

(Waatea News) Sharples claims that the North wants a Maori Party presence and the rebel Hone Harawira may find he has pushed his former party too far.

Despite a non-compete agreement at the time of the split, Maori Party co-leader Pita Sharples says Nga Puhi leaders want the party to stand a candidate in tai Tokerau against Hone Harawira.

We’ve had Ngapuhi leaders growling us because weve deserted them up north and I mean the leader leaders, the ones you see on tv doing all the claim and speaking on behalf of the iwi at Waitangi and everywhere else . Theyve had meetings and theyve been in touch with me personally, theyve been in touch with Tariana Turia and with the president to come up north and reestablish our branches up there, Dr Sharples says.

He doesn’t believe Mr Harawira’s claim that support for him to form a new political party is coming from Maori Party branches around the country.

  1. leader leaders aue! its about time those leader leaders realise their sell out antics are fast becoming the ends to their means…AND they didn't hear those voices when they put the norths representative in the lions den…like the bro said Pita is Toast…hes pukapuka thats what he is!

  2. Pita is TOAST. When he finally Wakes to that reality, The MAORI world will have moved into third gear. Doing deals with Sonny Tau. Ha. Get real. We will CRUSH the MAORI PARTY.

  4. the leader leaders – what does that mean? The rangatira get their mana from the people not from the TV or from the government of the day – a pity that Pita has missed this lesson.
