The Herald reports:
The Maori broadcaster and former Alliance MP was considering standing for the Maori Party in the Tamaki Makaurau electorate, but sources said he had since been approached by Labour and now planned to stand on the list for them instead.
Harre, McCarten and now Jackson all back in the fold. The new future focused Labour Party of 2017 is the Alliance of the 1990s!
It is understood Jackson had met with Labour leader Andrew Little and believes he will secure a high list ranking to secure his return to Parliament.
Oh dear. I hope Willie has done his due diligence. Labour are required to rank the list so half of the likely caucus is female. That means it is unlikely there will be any men in the top 10 effective list positions.
