New Maori Party president Tukoroirangi Morgan is tackling the party’s Hone Harawira problem.

He says vote splitting between the Maori and Mana parties allowed Labour to win back three Maori seats at the last election.

He wants to turn that around next year.

He told Radio Waatea host Willie Jackson he’s talked with the Mana leader after his election at the weekend.

"You know Hone and I went to school together. I'm not like others who have held senior portfolios in the Maori Party. I take the view that I will work with anyone who can improve the quality of life for our people and I will build a relationship for the benefit of Maori across this country," Mr Morgan says.

He’s also heard from a number of Maori and mainstream corporate leaders since his election, and he’s confident he can put together a sizeable war chest for next year’s campaign.

Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: Whoever wins the election, there is a renaissance within Māoridom that refuses point blank to co-operate any longer with a system that is structurally biased against them.
