Statement from James Shaw on Kennedy Graham and David Clendon
“Kennedy Graham and David Clendon have this evening decided to withdraw their names from the Green Party’s 2017 party list.
“We are disappointed they’ve made this decision, though we respect their right to do so.
“The Green Party is fortunate to have high calibre and energetic candidates on the party list, who are campaigning hard for the party.
“With this decision, candidates including Hayley Holt, Teall Crossen, Teanau Tuiono, Leilani Tamu, Matt Lawrey and Elizabeth Kerekere all move up two places on the Green Party list.
“We are looking forward to bringing these talented new candidates into Parliament at the election and will continue campaigning hard on our top issues of clean water, ending poverty, and climate action.
“I want to thank both David and Kennedy for their service to the Green Party. We wish David and Kennedy all the best,” said Mr Shaw.
