Candidates standing in te Tai Tokerau and Tamaki Makarau converged on Waipareira on Thursday to tell the whanau what they were going to do for them if they were elected to parliament.
Hone Harawira (Mana), Kelvin Davis (Labour), Te Hira Paenga (Maori party), Kereama Peni (Mana), Peene Henare (Labour), Rangi McLean (Maori party) and Marama Davidson (Greens) pitched to the whanau of Waipareira their party policies and their aspirations for Maori.
The debate was a success because of the way it was conducted. Candidates did not shout each other down or pick holes in their opponents armour. This allowed the whanau a better understanding of the candidates are and what they stood for.
