Holly Walker steps down

Holly Walker has announced that she won’t be seeking re-election as a List MP at the coming election. She is going to continue as the Hutt South candidate for the Greens. The Green Party have issued a press release here and Holly has posted on Facebook about it here.


She has taken to Twitter with this message:

I have blogged about Holly in the past, here. Holly is a Green MP I have a lot of time for. In my opinion, her, Julie-Anne, Kevin, Gareth and James Shaw were the generation of Green MPs that offered the chance for the Greens to break out of the 10-12% range and potentially into the high teens. I wish Holly all the best for the future and hope she does hang around on Twitter.
