Several interesting aspects. Four out of the top five are female (I thought there was a required gender balance.

Former MP Mike Ward has offended someone, as he is down in spot 29.

Also four of the top ranked candidates appear to be on the parliamentary payroll already.

It will be interesting to see what the final list looks like, and whether it differs much.
