The chair of the Maori Party's Tamaki Makaurau branch says there is new spark in the party as it looks for ways to stay relevant outside parliament.

The rohe held a hui yesterday at Ruapotaka Marae in Glen Innes to scope the issues it needs to address.

Tasha Hohaia says it is running basic political education on things like how to make submissions and the importance of building up the Maori electoral roll.

She says it's a voice that is needed.

"That's become really clear. Our people are still hungry to have Maori values, not just like a Maori idea on top of other Pakeha things. We want our values embedded in the nation, not just for Maori but for all New Zealanders," Ms Hohaia says.

The Maori Party can still work on analysing policy and being though leaders.

National Party meltdown
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: Folks, I've been following politics for almost a quarter of a century, and I've never seen anything like the recent events that have engulfed the National Party.
The Politics of Kindness
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: There's been a bit of debate online right now about what it means to have 'New Zealand values'. NZ First have brought the issue up by wanting a 'Values Test' for migrants and John Tamihere has written some thoughts in his latest NZ Herald column
Where's the business backbone?
John Tamihere: It beggars belief that business confidence is down, and to me this reflects major problems based on capacity and capability of our business leaders.
