MPThe Alliance has released its party list naming the people who will be at the heart of a new government.

'The Alliance has offered New Zealander voters a group of very talented, committed people of diverse backgrounds and experience,' Alliance Leader Jim Anderton said.


'In the top twenty 45% are women, 20% are Maori and 5% Pacific Islanders.


'A wide range of professions are represented from business to farmers and from the armed services to community workers.


'The Alliance also has a high proportion of younger candidates coming through who will be the face of the Alliance in the next millennium.
