List ranking

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.

  1. Are you sure 73 will be enough.
    The Hive says you might need a list of 80.
    Will you be on it?

    Why stop at 80? Why not a list of 120?

    Good luck HP, and make wise decisions. We are relying on you!

    FM:I’d love to think 73 won’t be enough and no I won’t be on the list – I feel then I speak and only later do I think which would be very dangerous for an MP.

    I2: in the interests of democracy I’d have to say that 120 might be a wee bit too much of a good thing 🙂
