Marama Davidson named as Greens co-leader

April 9, 2018

Marama Davidson has been elected new female co-leader of the Green Party.

The party made the announcement on Sunday morning, after months of voting from their members.

Ms Davidson, 44, beat Julie Anne Genter, 38.

Ms Davidson has been an MP since 2015. She spent a decade working with the Human Rights Commission before becoming an MP.

She said her number one goal would be to ensure the Greens don’t lose support while being in Government, as has happened to smaller coalition members in the past.

James Shaw has been leading the party alone since Ms Turei’s resignation ahead of last year’s election.
