He remained a Member of Parliament for Northern Maori until his own death on 7 January 1963.


During the Second Labour Government (1957–60) Labour held a working majority of one causing the party whips to impose strict discipline for attendance in the house to avoid the government losing a division. Media speculated that Paikea may be a weak link in this regard as his health was known to be poor and his attendance record in the previous parliament was not good. A well-worn joke in caucus was that senior whip Henry May was responsible for 38 members plus himself while junior whip Ritchie Macdonald was tasked with checking only on Paikea. During the three years of the government Paikea never put a foot wrong and not only had impeccable attendance but chaired the Maori Affairs select committee with skill. National MP Norman Shelton remarked on the change in attendance habits to which Paikea responded "In opposition, I was the only one worrying about my health. Now there are 40 others praying for me every night."


Paikea was elected to replace his father at the 1943 general election on 24 September 1943. A by-election was to have been held on 19 June 1943, with two candidates, Paikea and Mr Samuel W. Maioha of Russell. But when the government announced a September general election, the requirement to hold a by-election was then avoided by a special Act of Parliament; the By-elections Postponement Act 1943, passed on 11 June 1943.


A foundation pupil of the Ratana Pa school, Paikea started work in the Native Affairs Ministry. He led the Ratana Morehu Brass Band, and organised the special train which took the Ratana followers from the Tai Tokerau area in the Far North to Ratana for the annual festivals. In 1940 he played some senior matches for the Manukau rugby league club in Auckland.


Tapihana Paraire "Dobbie" Paikea (26 January 1920 – 7 January 1963), also known as Dobson, was a New Zealand politician and Ratana morehu who won the Northern Maori electorate for Labour in 1943. He was a Māori of Te Roroa, Te Parawhau and Ngāti Whātua descent. He was elected following the death of his father Paraire Karaka Paikea who had been the MP, and he held the parliamentary seat until his own death in 1963.
