I will be incommunicado for most of today because I’m a member of National’s list ranking committee and we’re meeting to determine who goes where on the party list.
I’ve done a couple of time-dealyed posts which will appear later in the day.
Our deliberations are of course confidential so I won’t be sharing them with you but it is no secret that we are spoiled for choice with a very high standard of candidates so it won’t be an easy task.
As Tracy Watkins points out:
The poll comes as a buoyant National prepares to unveil its party list rankings tomorrow and, in a sign of the times, it is preparing to put up a record 73 candidates.
The results will be made public at a press conference tomorrow morning.
