Team Sykes on a roll in Waiariki

Mana leader Hone Harawira is picking his party president Annette Sykes as the one to beat in Waiariki in September’s election.

It’s shaping up to be a three way race, as Maori Party co-leader Te Ururoa Flavell tries to hang on to his seat and Labour candidate Rawiri Waititi makes his first run.

Mr Harawira says Ms Sykes, a Rotorua-based lawyer, has been doorknocking since Christmas.

"Actually I feel a bit sorry for Rawiri tossing his 10-gallon hat into it this time. There’s bugger-all of a Labour team operating in that area at the moment. The last crew has pretty much given up because the word I get from them is they don’t want to go fighting for something when they know (David) Cunliffe is not cutting it for a lot of them, he’s not providing the kind of leadership and it’s kind of heartbreaking for a lot of them whereas Annette on the other hand, she’s got a team. They’re just rolling," he says,

Hone Harawira says Te Ururoa Flavell will be hampered by the perception that a vote for him is a vote for a National-led Government.
