The Herald reports:
TVNZ’s Shane Taurima has confirmed he will seek Labour’s selection for the Ikaroa-Rawhiti by-election, saying the late Parekura Horomia had approached him about standing in the past and he was now ready to “return home.”
Mr Taurima, who is the head of Maori and Pacific Programming at TVNZ, will go up against at least two others to contest the seat for Labour including district councillor Henare O’Keefe and Ngati Kahungunu chief executive Meka Whaitiri. It is expected to select the candidate this weekend.
At this rate, TVNZ will run out of staff as they all migrate to the Labour Party!
