Hone Harawira is launching the Mana Party today with help from some friends:
It was earlier thought plans to rally together left-wing activists like Sue Bradford and Matt McCarten in to the party had fallen over.
But details emerging this morning suggest Bradford and McCarten could be intimately involved with the party – possibly as candidates. . .
. . . A list of speakers for Saturday’s Mana Party launch released this morning includes Bradford, McCarten and veteran left-wing activist John Minto.
With friends like these there is no doubt Mana will be a left wing party and it might mean they will contest some general electorate seats not just the Maori ones.
