A Labour-Green-NZF Cabinet

James Henderson at The Standard blogs who he thinks would be the best -Green Cabinet, based on portfolios. They are:

  • PM – Shearer
  • Finance – Norman
  • Social Dev – Turei
  • Econ Dev – Parker
  • Health – Hague
  • Education – Robertson G
  • CERA – Dalziel
  • Housing – Ardern
  • Transport – Genter
  • Justice – Chauvel
  • Energy – Hughes
  • Labour – Little
  • Environment – Twyford
  • Attorney-General – Chauvel
  • Foreign Affairs – Goff
  • Maori/Treaty – Mahuta
  • Climate Change – Graham
  • Police – Little
  • Internal Affairs – Dyson
  • Commerce – Cosgrove

I thought I’d blog a possible Cabinet also, but not base it on my preferences but on current rankings. It is based on if there are 60 Govt MPs, being 36 Labour, 17 and 7 NZ First. I applied the St Lague formula to get a proportional allocation (that Shearer and Norman say would be their rough guide) and then allocated MPs from their current caucus ratings. They would be:

  1. David Shearer
  2. Russel Norman
  3. Grant Robertson
  4. David Parker
  5. Winston Peters
  6. Metiria Turei
  7. Jacinda Ardern
  8. Clayton Cosgrove
  9. Kevin Hague
  10. Nanaia Mahuta
  11. Maryan Street
  12. Catherine Delahunty
  13. William Su’a Sio
  14. Tracey Martin
  15. Phil Twyford
  16. Trevor Mallard
  17. Kennedy Graham
  18. Charles Chauvel
  19. Lianne Dalziel
  20. Eugenie Sage

At this stage I’m assuming Hone wouldn’t be a Minister, unless they needed his vote. Note this is not a prediction of 2014, just looking at what a left Government may look like.
