More on the Internet-Mana alliance

Following up on earlier points*, TVNZ has some interesting information on the joint party list being presented by the Mana Party and the Internet Party for this September’s general election in New Zealand.

Mana has the first, third and fourth positions on the list. Ms Harre has the second spot, while the fifth and sixth spots will also be held by Internet Party members. Subsequent places on the list will be assigned on an alternating basis.

But even more interesting, perhaps is that “Both the Internet and Mana parties will contest electorate seats with their own candidates and policies.”

They will not, apparently, have electorate candidates against each other. But they retain their separate identities in the nominal tier. This is a very unusual alliance!
