Harawira whānau happy to have Hone home

By Heeni Brown

The MANA leader's operations were shut down today after the shock upset last night in the Tai Tokerau seat. 

Hone Harawira's hopes of getting back into Parliament again were halted following last night’s shattering result. 

Parliament will welcome another Labour MP to the floor with Kelvin Davis winning the seat off Harawira by more than 1000 votes.

Harawira’s daughter Anikaaro Harawira said, “The whānau are happy to have our dad back.  Mum is happy to have him back too after 10 long years working for the whole world, country and Northland supporting everyone else, so we're lucky.”

Despite a heartfelt apology from Dotcom to Harawira and MANA, maybe tomorrow will see Hone re-surface.
