Elec­tion­eer­ing

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION / NEWS -

Edi­tor,

The re­port on Des­tiny Church by MTV’s Na­tive Af­fairs (June 6 ) showed Maori politi­cians elec­tion­eer­ing for the 9000 con­gre­ga­tion vote.

Hone Harawira’s as­ser­tion that he is go­ing to re­ac­ti­vate Maori Par­lia­ment in­trigues me. Does this mean that when Lock­wood Smith dis­solves the Na­tional-led Gov­ern­ment in Novem­ber this ac­ti­vated Maori Par­lia­ment could take over the man­tle un­der a Harawira-led Mana Party?

Should the ref­er­en­dum over the cur­rent MMP elec­toral sys­tem in­clude Te Iwi Ko­tahi­tanga (United Tribes) or TIK op­tion, where the gov­ern­ment cedes sovereignty?
