The Greens provisional list

March 18th, 2014 at 9:48 pm by David Farrar

The provisional list is:

1 Metiria Turei (n/c)
2 Russel Norman (n/c)
3 Kevin Hague (n/c)
4 Eugenie Sage (up 2)
5 Catherine Delahunty (down 1)
6 Gareth Hughes (up 1)
7 Kennedy Graham (down 2)
8 Julie-Anne Genter (up 5)
9 Jan Logie (n/c)
10 James Shaw (up 5)
11 Holly Walker (up 1)
12 David Clendon (down 4)
13 Denise Roche (down 2)
14 Mojo Mathers (n/c)
15 Marama Davidson (new)
16 Steffan Browning (down 6)
17 Barry Coates (new)
18 John Hart (new)
19 Jack McDonald (up 11)
20 Richard Leckinger (down 3)

Readers may recall that I published an unofficial draft list that someone in the Greens passed onto me, claiming it reflecting the thinking of someone in the parliamentary wing. That list was denounced as fake, yet I find it interesting certain similarities.

Here’s what the unofficial list had, and how it compares to his official draft:

  1. Russel Norman 1
  2. Metiria Turei 2
  3. Kevin Hague 3
  4. Eugenie Sage 4
  5. Catherine Delahunty 5
  6. Julie Anne Genter 8
  7. Gareth Hughes 6
  8. Kennedy Graham 7
  9. Denise Roche 13
  10. Jan Logie 9
  11. Marama Davidson 15
  12. Holly Walker 11
  13. Mojo Mathers 14
  14. Aaryn Barlow
  15. James Shaw 10
  16. Steffan Browning 16
  17. David Clendon 12

Certainly not identical, but the unofficial list I was given did correctly pick the top five, that Genter would be prompted to top 8, and that Browning and Clendon would be demoted. That tends to indicate whomever the author was, did have a good understanding of current sentiment in the Greens.

It will be interesting now to see how the final list ranked by the members goes.

    Heh yes Paul but Norman is number two’s. We now know who wears the pants and the $2,000 jackets in the Greens. Yet their voters wear loincloths and weave yoghurt and hemp with beads, go figure.

    How can an idiot like Genter who get’s owned by big Gerry everytime she opens her silly little mouth during QT about how everyone should be riding bikes get promoted? Definitely the lunatics party. :)

    A rare collection of wackos, nutters, weirdos, and Luddites.
    I expected Griff to be high on the communists’ list.

    I really miss Bob Clarkson and Aaron Gilmore.

    If Metiria Turei remains in the number one position and Greens have an opportunity to negotiate a coalition agreement with Labour will they promote Turei as a potential deputy Prime Minister?

    Greens would presumably prefer co-deputy positions but two of the three top positions may be unpalatable for Labour, and if NZ First is required to make up the numbers it would be untenable for Winston Peters.

    Who would Greens want as deputy PM?

    Norman is the real leader. Putting Turei at number one is a meaningless political statement that costs nothing as long as they don’t start acting accordingly. The Green’s policies may be silly but they are not tactically incapable. So in government they would not push for Turei to have an important portfolio where her performance would embarrass them.
