The Maori Party has elected MP Te Ururoa Flavell as its new co-leader alongside Tariana Turia.

Mr Flavell replaces Pita Sharples, who announced his resignation following the party’s poor result at the recent Ikaroa-Rawhiti by-election.

The former teacher entered parliament in 2005 when he claimed the Waiariki seat off Labour’s Mita Ririnui and has held it through two elections since – making it the safest of the Maori Party’s seats heading into 2014.

He will lead the party with Mrs Turia until the next election, when she will step down from her leadership role to make way for another female co-leader.
