Labour president pledges to release delayed party list this morning

10am: Labour Party president Moira Coatsworth has promised to get the party's candidate list out this morning.

The list was originally due last night, following a party meeting over Saturday and Sunday.

However it failed to appear.

"After final checking the list will be out this morning," Ms Coatsworth told RadioLive's Marcus Lush this morning.

The weekend saw the Labour president take time out for firefighting after a $150,000 donation to the party by Donghua Liu was revealed. The party says it can find no record, and the onus is on Mr Liu to prove he donated the money.

The party also faces some complicated maths and tricky decisions due to low-polling — which could see all but those on the upper reaches of the list miss out, assuming the party secures around 23 seats — and its so-called man ban, which requires 45% of the next caucus to be female (see Matthew Hooton's analysis and number-crunching here).

Ms Coatsworth says feedback from 2011 was that people wanted more discussion of the list.

"We took Saturday as well as Sunday because people wanted a fuller processes."

New elements, such as video presentations from potential list candidates, took more time.

An insider told NBR the Labour president was still being optimistic with her timeline. There was "almost no chance" the final list would emerge this morning.

Comments and questions

Has anyone ever checked whether Donghua Liu was ever in the New Lynn constituency when he used Cunliffe to write that letter? Or was that another fabrication?

Remember this moment in time...

This is the month that Labour implode upon themselves tripping themselves up with undeclared donations.

It's always the attempted cover-up's, the deceit, the lies and the tricky semantics that will be Labour's great undoing... and them found wanting of matters of probity, credibility, ethics, morals and basic courtesy with how one respects a Mega-donor...

What have your comments got to do with this story? Or are you just some National Party hack doing the rounds of Letters to the Editor / blogs?

I'm sure most others can see the parallels. No, not a National Party member, I don't belong to any. I'm just a voter wanting strong Parliament... And part of that is a credible opposition.

It strikes me that if you were really concerned with credibility you wouldn't use so much hyperbole.

Been a few withdrawals........................last man standing (oops no man rule)

I feel so discriminated

This election best ever dinner + a show

The party of broken promises?

This list should be interesting, as it is the one chance Labour has of showing some new faces in its line up - so watch for non MP's getting well placed on the list.

One fears that the comment "A gaggle of gays, and self serving unionists" (D O'Connor 2011), might be once again the norm (with a number of woman to meet a ill conceived gender target).

If the Labour list isn't based upon merit and capability, with a number of fresh faces to show energy and commitment, then we won't have to wait until September to know that it is game over for Labour this time around (and probably game over David C).

Having read through the list one has to say RIP Labour this time. Hijacked by the minorities.

Bit like the passenger list for the Titanic !

Yeah - but the big difference here is that the passengers on SS Labour can see the big election iceberg drawing nearer... yet regardless of how many deckchairs they rearrange - none of them can escape the floundering of their passage.

Can the current Labour mob get anything right. List due out last night , then this morning and now A party in obvious chaos.

The most interesting position is Kelvin Davis - high on the list so he can throw his electorate...?

Labour must want DotCom in government with them.

They have lost my vote with that lot

I was gone long before that.
