The Maori Party has put off changing its leadership until an annual meeting in the new year.

The party met in Auckland yesterday to review its performance in September’s election, when Te Ururoa Flavell lost his Waiariki seat and with it the party’s place in parliament.

Mr Flavell's says the big questions now are whether Maori still want the movement, what it can do outside parliament to benefit Maori, and what it needs to do to get back into parliament.

The Mana Party also met this weekend to consider its future.

Leader Hone Harawira says at this time it has not committed itself to trying to get back into parliament, but it will focus on community activism and being the voice for those who have no say.

He says as leader he will be the spokesperson for Mana development, and the one who will hold those in power accountable for the decisions that impact on Maori people.

Mr Harawira also thanked Maori Party president Tukoroirangi Morgan for creating a platform for the two parties to work together during the election campaign.
