New National Auckland Central Candidate

I attended the National Party Selection tonight for Auckland Central Electorate.

Candidates were Jacqui Blue, Nikki Kaye, Cam Calder and Clint Bowerman.

The venue was packed with as many observers as delegates present. There was a large presence of party heavy hitters. Two ex-Presidents, Mayor John Banks, Cr’s Bhatnagar, Goldsmith, Millar and Lotu Iiga from C&R and a couple of x-MP’s. After the speeches and questions from the President and Leader voting commenced. Entertainment while waiting for the ballot counts was from MP Paula Bennett.

Finally after three ballots the party has selected Nikki Kaye as their candidate for Auckland Central.

Judith Tizard has got a massive fight on her hands with Nikki, she is young, aggressive, motivated and more importantly she will be in the electorate campaigning.

Congratulations to Nikki. I am certain we will be hearing much much more from her.
