Green Party: A very representative list.

For those of you who don’t follow politics closely, the Green Party1 released their party list recently. Because party members vote directly for their party list, it’s been nowhere near as secretive as is usually the case for other parties.

Worth noting is that five of the first eight (there will be a minimum of four female Green MPs in Parliament if they cross the 5% threshhold) Party List candidates are women with excellent activism and social support experience.

With a policy that guarentees both a male and a female co-leader of the Party, the Greens are showing their credential on women’s issues from the very start of this campaign. Let’s see if other party lists are as representative.

1In the spirit of full disclosure, I am a member of the Green Party.
