Who’s up, who’s down? Labour Party reveals 2023 list

The Labour Party has revealed its 2023 party list, which will determine the political futures for its caucus.

New Cabinet Minister Willow-Jean Prime is one big winner, ascending from 18 into the top 10.

Most punished were former ministers Phil Twyford – who dropped from 32 to 49, and Michael Wood, who dropped to 45 from 30.

The previous listings came from the Labour Party website before the list announcement, not the 2020 election list.

The party says the existing Cabinet, whips and office holders had been ranked “broadly in their caucus order”.

Speaker Adrian Rurawhe moved from 24 to 11 and Jo Luxton – a minister outside Cabinet – had moved from 23 to 19, following the departure of former Justice Minister Kiri Allan.

Labour leader Chris Hipkins said the Labour list showed it was “a party for all New Zealanders”.

“This year’s party list reflects the enormous talent within our existing caucus, as well as the diversity of New Zealanders from right around the country.

“We have boosted our wider team with new talent from a range of different backgrounds including small business owners, lawyers, a senior diplomat, local government leaders and experts and leaders in te ao Māori.”

He said there were more people willing to “put their hands up” than there were spots on the list.

He said Labour would run a “positive and future-focused campaign”.

Asked how many MPs he believed would secure spots in Parliament via the list, he said “heaps”.

Party president Jill Day said she was confident the team was one that could win the election.

There were also five new candidates on the list, including Georgie Dansey, who unsuccessfully ran in the Hamilton West by-election.

Dansey had leap-frogged sitting MPs such as Anna Lorck and Angie Warren-Clark, as well as Wood.

Another addition was former Wellington City councillor Fleur Fitzsimons, who is contesting the seat of Rongotai. The seat is currently held by Paul Eagle, who ran unsuccessfully for the Wellington mayoralty and has announced he will retire from Parliament at the election.
