Dotcom sets sail for top of South
The Internet-Mana roadshow has taken to the water on the Interislander ferry as the new political grouping heads to Nelson for a public meeting tonight.
Internet Party founder Kim Dotcom, leader Laila Harre, and Mana's Te Tai Tonga candidate Georgina Beyer, will speak at the 6pm meeting at the Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology's Kowhai Lounge.
Mana leader Hone Harawira will not be present.
Dotcom tweeted photos from the Aratere on a crossing yesterday, including one with the captain.
It was an honor to be the Captain of the InterIslander for an hour. Best crew ever :-) pic.twitter.com/gRmVpmXtn8
The six-week roadshow began in Cape Reinga last month, and a party spokesman said the public meetings had attracted good crowds, including 350 people in Wellington on Monday.
Meanwhile, Labour leader David Cunliffe has ruled out a coalition deal - before or after the election - with the Internet Mana alliance.
