The new Hunua candidate

The selection occurred when I was overseas. The winner from a large field was Andrew Bayly who has an interesting and varied background. Some extracts:

  • managed the listing of approximately 25 companies on the London and New Zealand stock exchanges
  • Chair of a number of private companies
  •  Fellow of the NZ Chartered Institute of Company Management, Fellow of the UK Chartered Association of Certified Accountants; and Fellow of the New Zealand Institute of Management
  •  recently returned from Antarctica, where he climbed a number of mountains and dragged a sled for 111 kilometres to the South Pole

Hunua was won in 2011 by Paul Hutchison with a 16,797 majority so again it is highly likely Andrew will be an MP after the election.
