National party list 2017

The National Party has just released it’s party list for the 2017 election.

National’s 2017 Party List is a strong mix of experienced talent and fresh faces, Party President Peter Goodfellow says.

“National is incredibly lucky to have so many capable people we can draw on, from our Leader and Prime Minister Bill English right through to our newest candidates.

“Putting together a list is never easy, but this strikes the right balance between recognising experience, diversity, and pursuing ongoing renewal.”

The current Cabinet and Speaker David Carter make up spots one through 21, with existing MPs and new candidates following that. If National matched its result from 2014, 13 new MPs would enter Parliament alongside 47 returning MPs.

“Rejuvenation is important for any political party, and National is going into this election with some fantastic new candidates. We are also farewelling some very dedicated MPs who have served their constituents, our party and the country with distinction,” Mr Goodfellow says.

“This is National’s most diverse list ever. We’re incredibly proud to represent New Zealanders from all walks of life, with a range of ethnicities and backgrounds. We’ve got businesspeople, teachers, farmers, community advocates, scientists, and a pilot – just to name a few.

“National is working hard to build a strong economy so we can afford to invest in the things that matter to New Zealanders, like training more teachers, investing in health services, building more schools and roads, and boosting family incomes.

“Every MMP election is very close. All of our candidates will be campaigning hard to ensure National gets a strong Party Vote result so we can keep delivering for New Zealanders.

“The only way to secure another strong, National-led Government and avoid a chaotic Labour/Greens/New Zealand First coalition is by Party Voting National, and that’s what all of our candidates and volunteers will be focused on over the next eight weeks.”

    A powerhouse list of intellectual vigour and political nous.

    When Andy sees this he’ll need smelling salts to bring him around.

    TO BE CONFIRMED Clutha-Southland ?? Bloody immigrants.

      That’s a good list & it does have a diverse mix.

        As a matter of fact is does. And without any of the ” look at us” fanfare Labour likes to indulge in. If Labour does similar that’s a lot of heckles that wont rise. And it’ll be less ammo for political opponents and the media to fire.

      You wouldn’t want that, Zedd% Stick with Billy. He would have a tad of sympathy for you. Crusher wouldn’t. If fact she would want your benefit cut and you deported. Not a bad idea in my opinion.

          No, my friendly skull…you don’t get it.

          National is now an institution. A well oiled machine. A terminator of the politically weak. You could put a hedgehog in charge of National and they would still romp home.

          Wink if you understand.

      No, I reckon she would have more limited appeal than Bill. Better chances with Bill. He might not set the world on fire but at least he wouldn’t smah your face in if he could get away with it.
