After 12 years representing Māori in Parliament, the Maori Party is out of Parliament following the latest election.
Te Ururoa Flavell has been the voice of the Māori electorate of Waiariki, since 2005. He lost his seat to Tamiti Coffey.
Overall the Māori Party gained just 1.1 percent of the party vote, and all seven of the party’s Māori electorate candidates were beaten by Labour.
Mr Favell has achieved a lot in his time in Parliament. He has increased New Zealand’s understanding and recognition of the New Zealand wars, pardoned Rua Kenana and signed Aotearoa up to the United Nation’s Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
Marama Fox, the leader of the party, said that “We’ll be back, because this is not a political movement, this is a Māori movement,”
