Douglas to stand

To a standing ovation, Sir Roger Douglas has announced he will stand for ACT – as an electorate candidate, NZPA has reported.

This is smart politics.  The people who hate Roger Douglas will never vote ACT anyway, but it is a fairly strong symbolic gesture to those who supported the 80s reforms.

As far as I understand Douglas does not wish to actually win a seat, and is not after a high list ranking.
