The Maori Party's high profile new list candidate Tame Iti says he doesn’t want to be part of a protest party run by raving lunatics with forked tongues.

The Tuhoe activist says he supports being at the table where decisions are made, rather than being outside throwing rocks with his former companions in the protest movement.

That’s why he’s backing Te Ururoa Flavell in Waiariki, rather than his former lawyer Annette Sykes, who is standing for Mana.

"I think Annette Sykes is a raving lunatic. She keeps attacking the Maori Party but hey, if that's where she wants to be, then thats where she is and so I think they should just focus about what they think they can do rather than have a personal attack on individual people," he says.

Tame Iti says he will work with any mainstream political party which is willing to support Maori and iwi initiatives, as National seems prepared to do.
