Metiria wins while Bradford loses the battle for the Green Party co-leadership
Though Sue Bradford could not win the battle for the Green Party co-leadership, she is determined to remain working as a Member of Parliament. Ms. Bradford told this to her colleagues soon after the results were out.
Metiria Turei won the race for the new co-leader of the Green Party and soon when the announcement was made, Ms Bradford left the Greens conference.
Now Ms. Turei would replace outgoing co-leader Jeanette Fitzsimons, who is stepping down from the job after 14 years.
While the results were announced, the two competitors heard it with bated breath along with other caucus members at the conference.
The party would be co-led alongside Russel Norman by Ms. Turei. Mr. Norman is currently standing in the hotly contested Mt Albert electorate.
