As the hoardings come down in preparation for election day tomorrow, Tāmaki Makaurau MP Peeni Henare says he’s proud at the way the race to represent the country’s largest Māori city has gone.

The Labour candidate shared a large number of stages with Greens co-leader Marama Davidson and the Māori Party’s John Tamihere - as well as continuing to work with them in his role as Whānau Ora and Associate Health Minister.

He says a feature of campaigning in Māori seats has always been the respect candidates show each other.

"John, Marama and myself have run a strong campaign to make sure we are discussing and debating the kaupapa that are important to our people. As we head towards the polls tomorrow I am confident all three of us will continue to do the good mahi for our people," Mr Henare says.

OPINION: Another month and more Oranga Tamariki damage revealed
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: More public reports released this week showing abuse still occurring by Oranga Tamariki staff towards vulnerable children is just another damming indictment of a pākehā based welfare system with hollow values that are obscenely counter productive.
OPINION: Unpacking race based politics
Everyone knows that the politics of race can, has, and will impact on the mood and sentiment of voters heading to the polls.
