Waititi supposed fifth candidate for Ikaroa-Rāwhiti

  • North Island: East Coast

The Labour candidate for the Ikaroa-Rāwhiti by-election will be announced this Sunday.

In recent weeks, Te Kāea has spoken to Henare O'Keefe, Meka Whaitiri, Hayden Hape, and yesterday we spoke to Shane Taurima.

There were to have been five people contesting the spot, but today we met the supposed fifth candidate, Rawiri Waititi, who now has his sights set elsewhere.

Maiki Sherman is following this story in the Bay of Plenty, and she filed this report.
