The Maori Party list

August 26th, 2014 at 12:00 pm by David Farrar

Stuff reports:

Teacher and mother of nine Marama Fox and former party parliamentary staffer Chis Mckenzie are leading the ’s party list behind Co-Leader Waiariki MP Te Ururoa Flavell.

The list released this evening has Mr Flavell at number one, Ikaroa Rawhiti candidate Mrs Fox at number two, Te Tai Hauauru candidate Chris McKenzie at number three and Tuhoe activist Tame Iti at number seven.

Co vice president Donna Gardiner said youth was well represented on the 24 strong list with six of the top ten under 45.

The two youngest on the list, Reverend Te Hira Paenga who is facing off against Hone Harawira in Te Tai Tokerau and Anaru Kaipo standing in Whangarei were both 32 years of age.

 Maori Party List

1. Te Ururoa Flavell (Waiariki)
2. Marama Fox (Ikaroa Rawhiti)
3. Chris McKenzie – Te Tai Hauauru
4. Te Hira Paenga (Te Tai Tokerau)
5. Ngaire Button (Te Tai Tonga)
6. Nancy Tuaine (Whanganui)
7. Tame Iti
8. Eraia Kiel
9. Anaru Kaipo (Whangarei)
10. Raewyn Bhana (Manurewa)

It is possible the Maori Party may get some List MPs. If they only retain one electorate seat, then a 2.0% party vote would get them two List MPs on top of that.

    I know Marama Fox well – her brother was a flatmate of mine and she grew up in Christchurch. Lovely family – strong feisty talented lady but well grounded in reality (as you must raising 9 kids). She’d be a great addition to Parliament.

    I actually welcome Tame Iti to the List. It would be like having a living Goldie Painting in parliament (especially if he wears that hat).

    Both he (and Harawira for that matter) appear to have mellowed a lot, realising their reactive radicalism achieves little but confrontation.

    Hopefully the good reverend will split Hone’s supporters and King Kelvin will ride to victory – the only seat gained by Labour in the election!

    I really wish the people voting for this separatist and divisive scar on our political landscape would wake up to how they’re being used, and that by voting Maori Party they’re in reality just providing a meal ticket to a collection of opportunists and racists.

    Ngaire Button seems a strange choice for such a high list place. She was inept as a Christchurch City councillor despite being deputy mayor and a member of the Parker/Marryat A team. I would be disappointed if she gained a seat in Parliament as I believe she has little to offer the people of NZ.

    Just another group of rentier capitalists to cement national’s.

    I saw a video of Flavell saying that you make gains by being at the big table. I think he has a bit of the statesman about him. I like him.

    I hope that National, Maori Party and Green voters in Te Tai Tokerau are smart and split their votes and tick Kelvin Davis for their electorate vote. At the 2011 election, Hone Harawira only had a majority 1,165 votes; while the Maori Party candidate got 3,114 votes. Having Kelvin Davis as an electorate MP is surely worth it to deny Internet/Mana their coat tail.

    absolutely agree it is a pivotal seat in the whole outcome to prevent us getting rorted and run over by alien immigrant KDC

    Brian Smaller,

    I think the same re Flavell – to quote he has some mana about him and also has respect for the rest of us “pakeha’s”

    Flavell should have popped Tama up to no2.

    That would have given the disgusting Hone something to worry about! :)

    If you are going to have a separtist party – to which I think NZ should not but it is a whole other debate – this is an above
    average list. I think Tame should have been higher up.
    We must bear in mind there are historic tribal issues to balance out as well.
    The biggest mistake – cant change it now – was not allowing Te Ururoa to step up 2 years ago and provide real continuity.
    Shame on you Pita Sharples esp as you kept saying you did not want to be in politics.
