Maori Party president Tukoroirangi Morgan has shared a stage in Whangarei with Hone Harawira to urge Maori Party supporters in Te Taitokerau to give their electorate votes to the Mana candidate.
They were pushing the message voters could get two MPs in the electorate as incumbent Kelvin Davis is number two on the Labour Party list, although the pitch did not include a call for voters to give their party votes to Labour.
Mr Morgan says the agreement the parties signed that resulted in Mana not standing in any of the other Maori seats includes practical support.
"We will put boots on the ground to deliver pamphlets. We will work with the Mana Party to try to get Hone back in the Taitokerau seat as he will travel with me around this country in our campaign bus to get his supporters in Mana behind every Maori (Party) candidate who is standing for the Maori seats across this country," he says.
Mr Morgan is counting on tens of thousands of votes from the arrangement.
