Greens announce initial party list

Greens announce initial party list

The Green Party is excited to announce its initial party list of talented and diverse candidates determined to make a positive difference and improve life for all New Zealanders, Green Party Co-Convenor Georgina Morrison said today.
“The Green Party has a strong, dynamic team in Parliament and is looking forward to growing our numbers and helping change the government at this election,” Ms Morrison said.

“The list we are releasing today is by no means final. It is just a useful guide for members all over the country to use when making their own personal selection.”

The initial list is put together by delegates and candidates who attended the party’s February candidate conference. Delegates were able to put candidates through their paces and evaluate their performance. The initial list now goes to party members nation-wide to vote on. The Green Party uses STV voting.

“We have the most democratic list selection process out of the major parties and are proud of the high level of involvement our members have,” Ms Morrison said.

"It’s Green Party members not its leadership who decide who will be in Parliament working to make to New Zealand a smart, greener, more compassionate place to live.”

Voting papers will be sent to party members in the first week of April and voting will close on the 29th. The final list will be announced by the end of May.

Gordon Campbell: On Cunliffe’s Last Stand

Right now, embattled Labour leader David Cunliffe has three options. None of them are particularly attractive for him personally, or for the Labour Party.

In scenario one, Cunliffe could resign immediately and trigger a leadership vote among the caucus, the party membership and unions affiliates. This would be a high risk gambit in that it would pre-empt any review of the Labour election campaign and would be likely to open up new divisions.

While one can safely predict the caucus would vote against Cunliffe, the wider party and union response would be unpredictable, given that Cunliffe (ineptly) ran a centrist neo-Goff/Shearer campaign this year and not the left wing campaign that those who voted him into the leadership were expecting him to pursue.
