On the surface that seems fair, but which positions does it want?
Dr Norman wants Finance, Metiria Turei could get Social Development, Kevin Hague may get Health, Kennedy Graham could go for Trade, Eugenie Sage for the Christchurch rebuild, Gareth Hughes with Energy, and Catherine Delahunty with Education.
It’s not just the number of positions but their importance which ought to be taken into account. Some positions in Cabinet are more equal than others.
These are all very important positions which would have a very big impact on how much money the country earns, how it earns it, how much the government spends and how and where it spends it.
Having the Green Party wield that much power provides another very good reason to vote National.
