Among the many ironies of the Internet Mana Party is the aim to attract young voters when its candidates are middle-aged and older:
I think that’s the sort of logic these baby boomers are using – they can attract young voters because they once were young.
National, by contrast, has young MPs and candidates.
Among them is Cabinet Minister and Auckland Central MP Nikki Kaye who is in her early 30s.
Botany MP Jami-Lee Ross was only 11 when Harre first entered parliament so was National’s Dunedin South candidate Hamish Walker.
The party’s Clutha Southland candidate Todd Barclay, was only just at school when she first became an MP.
