Labour holding by-election selection hui

8:00 pm on 25 May 2013

The Labour Party began a weekend-long selection process on Friday evening to choose its candidate for the eastern Maori electorate, Ikaroa-Rawhiti.

Six people have put their hands up.

They are Hayden Hape, Molly Keelan-Pare, Henare O'Keefe, Tamati Olsen, Shane Taurima and Meka Whaitiri.

A by-election brought about by the death of Labour MP Parekura Horomia will be held at the end of June.
