from National party press release:
The National Party has announced a shortlist of five top nominees who have put their names forward for selection as National’s Tamaki candidate in the November 26 election.
A shortened candidate selection process is taking place after the decision by Tamaki MP Allan Peachey to step down at the election. Tamaki’s pre-selection committee met last night, while a final selection will take place on October 26.
Tamaki Electorate chair Andrew Hunt says the candidates are:
- Denise Krum
- Toni Millar
- Simon O’Connor
- Seby Reeves
- Mark Thomas
As with all selections this blog does not take a position on who should win the selection, as delegates are smart enough to choose the best candidate most of the time. A full profile of all candidates will be posted tomorrow.
This selection is being run very fairly, unlike others this cycle. Board members and regional chairs are not involved promoting candidates, in total breach of the ethics of their position, a position that requires complete neutrality.
