Former Green MP Sue Bradford has confirmed her candidacy in Waitakere.
This will help sitting MP and cabinet minister Paula Bennett by splitting the left vote.
The candidacy will get Bradford and her party some publicity and if Mana got sufficient party votes for a second MP, assuming its leader Hone Harawira keeps his seat, she might get in to parliament.
The iPredict contract gives Bennett a 74% chance of holding the seat.
The contract on Bradford being second on Mana’s list, after Harawira, hasn’t attracted much interest.
