I'm hoping to stand for parliamentI've always been a supporter of Peter Dunne. He is my MP and has done great things for the electorate in Ohariu. So when I read this I was interested:
Expressions of interest are sought from interested UnitedFuture members and supporters for selection as Parliamentary candidates for the General Election. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org outlining whether you wish to be considered for both an electorate and a place on the party list, or for an electorate or list position only. Expressions of interest should be submitted by 15 April.
I think it would be good experience standing for Parliament. Having worked at Parliament, I know a bit about the place.I have no doubt that Peter Dunne will retain his seat after the election - probably with an increased majority - and so it is the party vote that will determine how many seats the party gets.
So I expressed my interest earlier this week. I encourage people to join UnitedFuture - its only $5.00
