Only a really pernickety dickhead (i.e. me) would question whether Labour has broken their own rules/constitution in their new list...
278. The list shall consist of at least sixty-five (65) places, the final number to be determined by the Moderating Committee.
Labour implements its man ban by chucking 16 male electorate candidates off the list.
Staggering 21 Labour electorate candidates not on the List.
Good result of gender representation reform within our party: we will get at least two was one new female MPs. Setting quotas works.
Mallard, Dyson, Faafoi off the list
Electorate only MPs for Labour are Trevor Mallard, Kris Faafoi, Clare Curran, Ruth Dyson, Rino Tirakatene
@TrevorMallard opts not to go on Labour list. Shame. One of their brightest stars and most loyal to Leader.
A policy analyst from the Ministry of Women's Affairs Priyanca Radhakrishnan is the top non MP on Labour's new list. In at 23.
I have no idea who Priyanca Radhakrishnan is, but go WOC. Go you good thing.http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/PO1406/S00372/labour-list-for-the-2014-election-announced.htm …
Carmel Sepuloni almost beat Paula Bennett in 2011 - you'd think she'd be a bit higher:http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/PO1406/S00372/labour-list-for-the-2014-election-announced.htm …
@danylmc strong assumption that she will win Kelston.
The List (64 people) has 30 men and 34 women. 21 (16 men and 5 women) are standing only for electorates #ttrtpt
Priyanca and Rachel will be awesome additions to caucus and are both likely to get in. Awesome result from moderation committee.
No Trevor Mallard on the Labour Party list, electorate only. His choice. Wanted to give colleagues like Kelvin Davis a better chance
Tamai Coffey and Priyanca Radhakrishnan top non MPs on Labour's new list. See Beehive Live for the full list http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/beehive-live/10181110/Beehive-Live-June-23-2014 …
Apologies, Rachel Jones ahead of Coffey - she's the candidate for Tauranga and a owns a second hand book shop
Labour's list ranking is out. Highest non sitting MP is Priyanca Radhakrishnan, a policy analyst. 9 out of top 20 are women
