Bennett goes list only

Newshub reports:

MP says she will not be seeking re-election as MP for in next year’s election.  
Bennett has been appointed as National’s campaign chair for the 2020 election and said being the party’s campaign chair will be a “massive commitment” and one that she wants to give “100 percent” of herself to. 
“As such I won’t be seeking re-election as the MP for Upper Harbour but will be on the National Party’s List,” Bennett said in a statement Wednesday. 

That’s a smart decision. You can’t really be an effective campaign chair and also running an electorate campaign.

Upper Harbour is a very safe seat – a 9,556 majority. Paula won 56% of the electorate vote and National 54% of the party vote.

There should be considerable interest in such a blue seat.
