Lee selected for National

National’s selection panel of 60 members has selected Melissa Lee for the by-election. Congrats to Melissa.

The result is not a big surprise considering Melissa was ranked a very high 37 on the 2008 list, and Ravi was ranked No 65.

Tomorrow I’ll take a look at how the numbers for Mt Albert stack up.

UPDATE: For those who are enough to believe the story that a National Party conference had already listed Melissa as the candidate, Homepaddock has the actual facts:

But it’s the paper that’s got it wrong. ’ve got a copy of the official programme and it says:

Address by Mt Albert’s List MP Melissa Lee.

There is a big difference between being a candidate for an electorate and a List MP for an area.
