The arrangement between Internet Party and MANA has the party rankings listed like this…

…based on those rankings and looking at the Internet Party’s list and the recently announced MANA candidate lists, my thinking is the final Party list would look like this…

Hone Harawira (MANA Leader)

Laila Harre (Internet Leader)

Annette Sykes (MANA)

John Minto (MANA)

Chris Yong (Internet Party)

Miriam Pierard (Internet Party)

James Papali’i (MANA)

David Currin (Internet Party)

Te Hamua Nikora (MANA)

 

I think James Papali’i needs to be placed high enough on the Party list to have the desired impact he can generate inside the Pacific Island Community. If MANA are serious about appealing to the South Auckland electorate it can’t make the same mistake Labour have made by taking that vote for granted, James has to be high enough on the list to show MANAs support of Pacific island vote isn’t mere lip service.

Thinks get a little more complicated with candidates winning electorates and leap frogging, but if the Party vote holds up this won’t be a problem. I think Internet MANA can get 3.5% of the vote, and the possibility of a higher Party vote can’t be ruled out.

  1. What level of energy would those people bring to parliament compared to many current backbenchers, and frontbenchers come to think of it?

  2. The first four have always been activists that’s a big start. The only activist currently in parliament I think is Catherine Delahunty, she cut her teeth on activism.
