Deal with Maori Party falls over

An agreement between the Maori Party and its former MP Hone Harawira appears to have broken down. The two have agreed the party wouldn’t stand anyone in Harawira’s Te Tai Tokerau seat, while he wouldn’t stand any candidates in other Maori seats. But Mr Harawira says the Maori Party’s broken other promises about his office accommodation, seating in the house and by personally criticising him, and as a result, he’s now not ruling out putting up candidates in Maori seats if he forms a new party. Hone Harawira says that’s sad, because he signed the agreement and was prepared to stand by it, but the party wasn’t willing to do the same.
