E rua noaiho ngā rā kei te toē ki te kōwhiringa pōti  ā-rohe o Te Onewa, ā, kei te kaha te Rōpū Reipa kia kanohi kitea ia ki waenga i ngā kaipōti. Ko te Pirimia, ko Jacinda Ardern i hīkoi i te taha o te kaitono Māori nei, o Shanan Halbert ki te tūtaki i ngā kaipōti. 

He harirū, he menemene, he kapo whakaahua te mahi, wheoi kei roto i ngā ringaringa o te Rōpū Reipa te hapori?

“I've lived in this community for a very long time. I've worked here in our local kura since 2005, training young people,” i mea atu a Halbert. “So I have the relationships here with the community, with the government.”

Hei tā tētehi o kainoho ka tuku tana pōti ki a Halbert.

“The guy who's been living here seven years and worked here before that rather than the guy who just moved in after he got selected.”

Wheoi e ngana ana ngā kainoho ki te hariru i te tangata a Nāhinara, a Dan Bidois, me te whakapae he whakataetae nei i waenga i ngā kaitono Māori tokorua.

“We're out there campaigning day and night,” ka kōrero atu a Bidois.

“And I think people just like my story. I'm a born and breed Aucklander. I've moved here I'm committed to this area. I've studied at Harvard, I'm a butcher. People love that I can relate to them.”

Ko te mahi nui ma te Pirimia ma Jacinda Adern inaianei he hikoi I te hikoi mei kore e aro mai te nuinga kit e tangata a Reipa a Shannan Halbert Ko te patai mēnā ka ea?

Ko ngētehi kei te kī he tino tata rawa ki te kī ka toa a Dan Bidios o Nahinara engari mō ngētehi kua tau kē ā rātou pōti.

Ka kī atu tētehi atu o te hapori, “Last year I know I voted for Labour, and then I saw the gas prices were going up and thought that I should sign the petition and vote for someone else.”

Ka mutu, ko tā tētehi kē atu, ka ahu tana pōti ki a Nāhinra, whērā i ngā tau ki muri.

Ka tū te kōwhiringa ā-rohe hei te Rāhoroi nei, ā, ahakoa e māia ana te tokorua kia puta te ihu, kei te whakaae, kei ngā ringaringa o te kaipōti te whakatau whakamutunga.
