7:35 pm on 14 December 2011

Pita Sharples and Tariana Turia will continue to lead the Maori Party.

They've been confirmed as co-leaders by the party's National Council.

Party president Pem Bird says he's confident they are the team to take the party forward - as the next three years are crucial to the party's renewal as a strong and credible force.

The decision to re-appoint the co-leaders was made at a general meeting held via a conference call.
