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.
