About Green Party of Aotearoa New Zealand

The Green Party of Aotearoa New Zealand (in Māori: Rōpū Kākāriki o Aotearoa) is a political party that has seats in the New Zealand parliament. It focuses firstly on environmentalism, arguing that all other aspects of humanity will cease to be of concern if there is no environment to sustain it. Ecological economics, progressive social policies, participatory democracy, and non-violence make up the balance of its platform. The party is currently co-led by MP Metiria Turei and Russel Norman. The party has both a male and female co-leader. The male co-leader position was vacant following the November 2005 death of Rod Donald until the 2006 annual general meeting when Norman was elected using the alternative vote system by party delegates from electorates around the country. The Green Party contests Auckland City Council elections under the City Vision banner, in concert with the NZ Labour Party and The Alliance. The Greens generally focus primarily on environmental issues. In recent times, they have expressed particular concerns about mining of national parks, fresh water, climate change, peak oil and the release of genetically engineered organisms.
