Not just the Maori seats

Following its high polling in the Maori seats, the Maori Party will now be contesting as many as 32 general seats as well. This can only be a Good Thing - it will show that the Maori Party is not solely a product of the Maori seats, it will increase electoral competition and the options available to voters, and it may very well give Labour a run for their money in a few places.

Still, there is one down side: it means I'll have to send out more candidate surveys...
