The Dom Post reports:
Labour has confirmed that Te Atatu MP Chris Carter is the only nomination for the seat, meaning he is soon likely to be ratified as a candidate for the 2011 election.
Cheers around the Beehive can be heard welcoming this news.
As the only candidate, Mr Carter would now face a confirmation meeting run by his local electorate committee, including a question and answer session, a speech and a formal motion of confirmation.
Maybe the electorate committee will hold him to account?
Mr Carter’s long-time partner, Peter Kaiser, is the electorate chairman in Te Atatu.
Maybe not.Tags: Chris Carter, Labour, Peter Kaiser, Te Atatu
