Govt, Labour rule out working with Mana Party

8:56 am on 3 May 2011

National and Labour have ruled out working with Hone Harawira's new Mana Party.

The MP for Te Tai Tokerau launched the party at the weekend and plans to force a by-election.

Prime Minister John Key says he will not work with Mr Harawira now, or after November's election.

Labour leader Phil Goff says the Mana Party is welcome to support a Labour Government, but Mr Harawira will never be in a support arrangement with Labour because he is unreliable.
