Greens are hypocrites..again

Apparently the Green Party supports electoral reform in the hands of politicians only if they are the politicians having a disproportionate amount of influence.

The Greens supported the Electoral Finance Act only with the promise of a wide ranging review of electoral reform, driven by a citizens jury. That's not going to happen now. Instead of the Greens withdrawing support for the EFA, it is moaning that the panel has been disbanded.

The Greens supported partisan, self serving law making. If a citizens jury is appointed again, and National does not consult with other parties, the Greens will be the first to complain. But they didn't complain when Labour appointed the experts to that panel without consultation, because they thought they`d get more money from state funding of political parties.
