Greens list released

The Greens have released their list for the election. Farrar comments:

The big mover is Browning. He was No 12 on the list in 2008. The hierarchy put him down at no 16 which is highly unlikely to win, but the members put him up to no 10 where is highly likely to make him an MP.

The press release from Metiria Turei doesn’t mention Browning at all, despite him being the big mover. This suggests they are not too happy with his promotion – possibly he is seen as too old being in his late 50s

This is too good an opportunity to miss.

Meanwhile National still hasn’t finished all of its selections and so can’t even convene the list ranking committee. To be fair the President has probably been a bit distracted lately.

    I thought former Green MP Ian Ewen-Street might have put his hat back into the ring ….

    • He has as slight problem with name recognition these days.
