Great news for the NZ Green Party

Congratulations to the Greens! The latest New Zealand Elections have seen the Green party increase their standing to 10% of the party vote with a total of 13 MPs that will now be in Parliament. I have been incredibly impressed by the growth of the Green party which has moved out of the small activist party realm and into a real contender with strong focused policies. Although the next few years will not be easy for the party as they will still be on the backfoot of a right led government this election has shown that New Zealanders want more environmental policies to be taken seriously. It's all a step in the right direction.

One of the policies I feel most strongly about is their economic plans to provide more green jobs and increase our exports in the renewable energy sector. I will be following this policy closely in the coming term. Let's do everything we can for a greener NZ.
