3:09 pm on 2 May 2013

Mana Movement co-vice president John Minto is to stand as a candidate for the Auckland mayoralty.

Mr Minto said on Thursday that he would be releasing policy in coming weeks.

National Party MP Maurice Williamson said he has had approaches from many people wanting him to challenge mayor Len Brown and is considering the idea, but not made a decision.

Voting papers for the council elections must be in by midday on 12 October.
