The Hauraki-Waikato Maori Electorate announce the successful selection of Angeline Greensill as the candidate for this electorate. In a closely fought contest between four candidates, Angeline was selected and confirmed by the Maori Party National Council to stand in the 2008 elections.

Maori Party members have put their support behind Angeline Ngahina Greensill, long time land and environmental activist daughter of James and Tuaiwa (Eva) Rickard, as the candidate for the Hauraki-Waikato seat in the 2008 election.

The results of the seven hui carried out throughout the electorate over the past two weeks were released late last night after the final Maori Party selection hui in Greensill’s home town Whaingaroa Raglan.
