Greens initial list

The initial Green Party List has been released. It then goes out for a membership vote, and then back for final moderation to ensure all the quotas are met. While they will get some new blood in, the existing MPs are largely protected.

The list is:

  • 1    Metiria Turei (nc)
  • 2    James Shaw (+11)
  • 3    Julie Anne Genter (+5)
  • 4    Marama Davidson (+11)
  • 5    Eugenie Sage (-1)
  • 6    Jan Logie (+4)
  • 7    Gareth Hughes (-2)
  • 8    Mojo Mathers (+1)
  • 9    Jack McDonald (+11)
  • 10  Barry Coates (+6)
  • 11  Kennedy Graham (-4)
  • 12  John Hart (+5)
  • 13  Chloe Swarbrick
  • 14  Denise Roche (-1)
  • 15  Golriz Ghahraman
  • 16  David Clendon (-5)
  • 17  Teanau Tuiono
  • 18  Leilani Tamu
  • 19  Teall Crossen
  • 20  Chris Perley

On current polling they would get 14 MPs. They normally do worse than they poll though so Hart, Swarbrick and Roche are on the cusp.

This list will not be the final list as the have rules that require the final list to have gender balance and they have too many women in their top ranks. Very ironic that a rule designed to help women get representation will end up pushing them down the list.

Men must make up at least 40% of the list at each rank after the first three. So the male percentage at each rank is:

  • 4 – 25%
  • 5 – 20%
  • 6 – 17%
  • 7 – 29%
  • 8 – 25%
  • 9 – 33%
  • 10 – 40%

This means that Hughes, McDonald, Coates etc will have to be pushed up the list ahead of Davdison, Sage and Logie to meet their gender quotas.
