Harre confirmed as Internet Party leader, reveals focus
May 29: The Internet Party has confirmed Laila Harre is its leader.
"Clearly you're all very surprised," the former Alliance MP said as she took the stage.
Of the unusual chain of events leading to the creation of Internet Mana, Ms Harre said, "The circumstances have embarrassed right-thinking nz, but every cloud has a silver lining."
The former Alliance MP said she was ready for leadership after a long apprenticeship (to which Mana's Hone Harawira quipped "I'm a leader too.")
