Hereora was first elected to Parliament in the 2002 elections, standing unsuccessfully against National's Judith Collins in Clevedon but nevertheless entering Parliament as a list MP. He was Māori Vice-President of the Labour Party. Hereroa served until 2008 as Chair of the Māori Affairs Select Committee.
He stood unsuccessfully again in 2008 against Judith Collins in the new Papakura electorate, however he was not elected even as a list MP due to a big swing against Labour to National, having been given a lower rating on the Labour list.
