Passionate and experienced - Green Party list 2008
Green Media Release 12 May 2008
The Green Party today released its party list for the 2008 election.
"We are enormously proud to present our list for the 2008 election" says Jeanette Fitzsimons and Russel Norman, Green Co-Leaders.
"New Zealanders have come to expect high standards from the Greens and the calibre of this list stands up to that test.
"The Green list combines experience and passion. Five of the current Green MPs are standing again, well supported by a talented group of new candidates.
"These are people who care deeply about the future of Aotearoa New Zealand and have a track record of working to make our country and our world a better place.
"The Greens will be campaigning vigorously at the election to get as many of our list candidates as possible into Parliament.
Five of the current six MPs are standing again. Nandor Tanczos has previously announced that he will not be standing again this year.
The newcomers to the top 12 include Russel Norman, Green Co-leader, elected after the death of Rod Donald. We also have Kevin Hague, Catherine Delahunty, Kennedy Graham, David Clendon, Gareth Hughes and Steffan Browning.
The full Green list is attached. There may be additions to the list. More information on the candidates can be found on the Green website.
