  • Green Party rates young women and Māori

    By Eruera Rerekura - Eru.Rerekura@tvnz.co.nz | @erurerekura

    Young women and Māori feature highly on the Green Party’s final list for this year’s general election.

    Slight changes have been made from the party’s draft list published last month with former Auckland mayoral candidate, Chloe Swarbrick, promoted from number 13 on the list to number 9, and Auckland-based lawyer Golriz Ghahraman rises five places to number 10.

    Te Tai Tonga candidate and party co-leader Metiria Turei remains unchanged from the draft list sitting on top at number one.

    And Te Tai Hauāuru candidate and Te Ātiawa man Jack McDonald, still in his early twenties, drops back one place from 12th to 13th.

    Other Māori candidates featuring in the top 20 include Tamaki Makaurau candidate Marama Davidson stepping up to number 3, David Clendon remains at number 16 and Te Anau Tuiono dropping to number 19.
