Maori Party co-leader Marama Fox wants a clean election campaign - but she fears her party could be a target for the opposition.

She says Labour, New Zealand First and the Greens want to knock National off its perch but they know that's a hard task.

That's why they will go for the support parties.

"If you have a look at the Maori Party with their two votes, people go 'we can destroy them' and that's exactly what (New Zealand First deputy leader) Ron Mark said in the house, we're out to destroy the Maori party, that's our number one goal at the election, Labour are doing the same thing and so I have already heard the rumours flying round and it is going to get rough and it is going to get dirty and I'm not interested in any of it," Ms Fox says.

She will campaign on the message that Maori need to vote strategically to give kaupapa Maori parties the balance of power.
