Mana Party and Māori Party to talk ‘unification’
The Māori Party executive will meet Mana Party Leader Hone Harawira, after the two parties put their differences behind them in July.
Mr Harawira said today’s meeting was a follow up to a previous meeting where he and Māori Party president Tukoroirangi Morgan talked about the “unification” of the Māori parties.
Mr Harawira said he was open to a formal merger or alliance with the Māori Party. …
Although the personality obstacles probably retired with Turia and Sharples, it is hard to see how Mana’s left wing policies can be reconciled with the Māori Party’s record propping up the Key government.
