National ramming through legislation, says Harawira

Mana Party leader Hone Harawira says a "blitzkrieg" of legislation is being rammed through Parliament because the National Party knows that after this term it will not be in power.

About 100 people gathered at Mataikotare Marae, near Rotorua, on Saturday for the party's annual meeting.

Mr Harawira, the MP for Te Tai Tokerau, told the meeting that the National Party knows it only has two and a half years left in Government.

He also said the Mana Party is a political movement not a party.
