Harawira 'unfazed' at being only Mana MP

11:24 am on 27 November 2011

Mana leader Hone Harawira says he is unfazed by being the only member of his party to win a parliamentary seat in Saturday's election.

Mana attracted just 1% of the party vote, while Mr Harawira's 2011 by-election majority was cut by Labour list MP Kelvin Davis.

Mr Harawira says he won the seat with no major sponsors and no government money at all, so the party was up against it.

He says he is comfortable with the outcome and and not concerned at being Mana's sole MP.
