Conservative List Released


1 November 2011
Conservative List Released

The Conservative Party list for the 2011 election has been released today.

Although the party has only been officially registered for less than four weeks, it has managed to field 52 candidates, substantially more than all other minor parties except the Greens.

Conservative Party Leader Colin Craig says “I think it’s amazing that in a few short weeks we have put forward a list of quality people, that are representative in age, gender, ethnicity, and vocation of all New Zealanders”.

“I know the people we’ve put forward will be great representatives for the country, and as we now start our campaign, I expect them to impress New Zealanders and ultimately win their vote” he says.

Campaign Manager Patrick Dougherty says “This list reveals that a wide cross section of New Zealanders care enough to want to be part of bringing change to the way our nation is governed.”

“52 candidates is a great start for a newly registered political party” says Dougherty.

The full list of Conservative Party candidates, their electorates, and list placings is attached to this release, and will be available on our website shortly.
