The Green team

While Nationa, Labour and NZ First are being cagey about who will line up for them in coalition negotiations the Greens have tried to jump into the proceedings by announcing their team.

Green Party announces government negotiation team

The Green Party is today announcing the team that will lead its negotiations to form the next government.

The team consists of:
-Co-leader James Shaw
-Musterer and MP Eugenie Sage
-Acting Chief of Staff Tory Whanau
-Party Co-Convenor Debs Martin
-Party Campaign Committee member Andrew Campbell

“Our team has the experience and expertise to represent the interests of the Green Party, its members and its supporters in the negotiations to come,” said Mr Shaw.

“While formal negotiations have yet to start, I think it’s important to be transparent about who’s being entrusted to lead our team when they do.

“The negotiation team is supported by a reference group with broad expertise, including Jeanette Fitzsimons and other senior figures in the Green Party.

“I want to assure Green Party members and the public that we go into these negotiations in good faith and with the best interests of all New Zealanders at heart.

“Forming a stable, progressive government and advancing the Green Party’s priorities of real climate action, cleaning up our rivers and ending poverty are all top of mind.

“We also know that New Zealanders want these negotiations to be undertaken professionally and promptly; the Green Party will honour that,” said Mr Shaw.

They will find out sooner or later that a campaign PR approach os not likely to get them much attention.
