The Green Party has decided not to run a candidate in Ohariu to give Labour a better chance at unseating United Future leader Peter Dunne.
That is despite the Green Party previously expressing concerns about the Labour candidate Greg O’Connor’s position on several issues.
Green co-leader James Shaw said his party’s national executive decided against running a candidate in Ohariu ‘because it increases our chances of changing the Government’.
Dunne won the seat by just 710 votes in 2014 – while the Green Party candidate Tane Woodley received 2764 votes.
