A facebook page has been set up promoting a party wide Labour leadership vote in February:
We are New Zealand Labour Party members committed to a party wide, open and transparent leadership election in February 2013.

I would like to confirm that at this stage David Shearer, nor any other MP, has ‘liked’ the page.
