Labour’s Kaunihera Māori has unanimously endorsed Tane Phillips in his run to be the party’s next president.

The Kawerau unionist and current Māori senior vice-president is up against habitat for Humanity chief executive Claire Szabo.

Kaunihera Māori chair Rudy Taylor says Mr Phillips has learned a lot from his three years on the party’s ruling council, and he was also a major part of the drive to win all seven Māori seats and increase the size of the Māori caucus to 13 in the last election.

"We believe he’s got the ability in the way he works with people, not just Māori but Labour members right across, and sometimes when we give him the right message to give back to the party, he has done that with integrity to our members, so we support him," Mr Taylor says.

The position will be voted on at Labour’s conference in Whanganui at the end of the month.
