Stage 1 of the deal is done

I blogged a few weeks ago on the proposed deal between and , being:

  1. Green Party formally endorses Labour candidate for Mayor
  2. Labour stands down its candidate in one of the three Wellington seats and endorses the Green candidate to give them a parliamentary seat
  3. Annette King goes list only, freeing up Rongotai
  4. If Labour-Greens win, Annette is made High Commission to Canberra
  5. The Labour Deputy Leader would normally be Deputy PM, but if King takes a diplomatioc posting this means they can offer Winston Deputy Prime Minister

A friend has forwarded me this:


So the Greens have delivered on Part One. So which seat is Labour going to try and give them in return? Rongotai, Ohariu or even Wellington Central?
