National's campaign for the Pacific vote in south Auckland has suffered a serious blow.
The party's Mangere candidate is facing accusations from Labour of fraud and deception for using a Matai or Samoan chief title without having earned it.
Misa Fia Turner is fighting for National in the Labour stronghold of Mangere.
But the Misa in her name – the Samoan chief title – is being questioned, throwing doubt on Prime Minister John Key's campaign in south Auckland.
"I inherited it from my father," says Ms Turner. "It's an honour."
