Kei mua a Meka Whaitiri e ai ki ngā tatauranga moata

According to statistics coming in from our Māori Television website showing the three leaders, it is revealed that Labour's Meka Whaitiri is well ahead.

The Mana Party's te hāmua Nīkora comes in at second place, followed by Nā Raihānia of the Māori Party.

Doctor Ella Henry of te Wānanga Aronui o Tāmaki Makaurau says that although Meka Whaitiri is in the lead at present, we will never know the outcome until the voting ends.

She also says that the current results displayed through statistics for the Māori Party shows that they have collated the most number of supporters from their area.
