The Greens Party List

The have released their party list. No Right Turn has it, along with changes from 2005.

What I thought I would cover is how it varies from the list the hierarchy drew up, and sent to the members. Not a lot of changes (ie most people ranked them in the order supplied) but a few:

  1. David Clendon up from 11 to 10 (+1)
  2. Gareth Hughes down from 10 to 11 (-1)
  3. Mikarere Curtis down from 13 to 16 (-3)
  4. Quentin Duthie from from 14 to 15 (-1)
  5. Rick Leckinger down from 15 to 17 (-2)
  6. Mojo Mathers up from 16 to 13 (+3)
  7. Jon Carapiet dropped out (was 17)
  8. Donna Wynd down from 18 to 20 (-2)
  9. Jeanette Elley up from 19 to 18 (+1)
  10. Richard Green dropped out (was 20)
  11. Virginia Horrocks up from 21 to 19
  12. James Redwood down from 22 to 23 (-1)
  13. David Hay up from 23 to 21 (+2)
  14. Diana Mellor up from 25 to 22 (+3)
  15. Jan McGlachlan up from 26 to 25 (+1)
  16. Mike Ward up from 27 to 14 (+13)

Mike Ward is the one who has changed most. Obviously the party members think a lot more of him than the hierarchy do. It will be interesting if will will roll over and allow Russel Norman to leapfrog him to become an MP in a few weeks.

On current polling the Greens would get seven MPs. Some months up to nine. So the likely Caucus at this stage is:

  1. Jeanette Fitzsimons
  2. Russel Norman
  3. Sue Bradford
  4. Metira Turei
  5. Sue Kedgley
  6. Keith Locke
  7. Kevin Hague
  8. Catherine Delahunty (possible)
  9. Kennedy Graham (possible)
