With the departure of another ‘rat off the ship of state’.. the electorate of Northcote (North Shore Auckland) are due to have a by-election in June.
Here are the party’s putting up candidates:
ACT NZ, National party, Dems/Social Credit, Labour party, Green party, an Indep., Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis (ALCP), NAP
I cannot vote in this electorate.. I once lived nearby though.
Whilst there is a perception that the ‘incumbent party’ will retain the seat (another Suit in a Blue-Rosette)
BUT; I’m saying ‘Nga Mihi’ to ALCP, Greens & ACT(libertarians) who are all pro-reform.. oh yes & Labour are fence sitters.. leaning to the side of reform. I don’t have clear info. on others.. but Natl are clearly a ‘status quo only’ party.. just saying
