It's Hon. Hone now

from the brand new Mana Party website.

MANA, movement of the people, is Aotearoa’s newest political force, led by Hon Hone Harawira, Independent MP for Tai Tokerau.
He is actually the MP for Te Tai Tokerau, not the Hon. Hone Harawira. Not a particularly great start for a new political movement that is after the "intelligent" Maori vote.
Candidate Annette Sykes estimated there were 700-1000 people at the party's launch yesterday. The media more accurately said 300, as you can see from the photo.

Apparently the Mana Party has 600 paid members, so it can now be registered as a political party.

All members are honourable members.

so are judges from the High court up, in that they can use the Hon. title in their roles, whereas not all members of parliament can. Harawira is one who cannot.
