After Mr Harawira failed to turn up at an Internet Mana announcement about decriminalising cannabis for medicinal purposes this week, there was speculation about tension between the parties.

But Mr Harawira said there was no tension and he missed the announcement because he was campaigning in his Te Tai Tokerau seat.

Mr Harawira said he was happy with the arrangement with the Internet Party and particularly with leader Laila Harre.

"I'm really happy with the arrangement we have in the leadership team," Mr Harawira said.
