Maori Party MP Hone Harawira is well ahead of his Labour rival Kelvin Davis in the Te Tai Tokerau electorate, an opinion poll has shown.

The Marae-Digipoll gives Mr Harawira 69 percent support against 26 percent for Mr Davis.

The poll was the second to show the Maori Party in good shape for the November 8 New Zealand election.

A Marae-Digipoll released yesterday put co-leader Pita Sharples on 77 percent support in his Tamaki Makaurau electorate with Labour's Louissa Wall gaining only 13 percent.

Mr Harawira, who announced the result of the Te Tai Tokerau poll today, praised his own popularity and said the result confirmed what he had already known.

He won the seat at the last election when he beat Labour's Dover Samuels by 3613 votes.

Mr Samuels has retired from politics.

The Maori Party holds four of the seven Maori seats and is hoping to win all of them.
