Here’s some more of my analysis on Marama Davidson’s election as co-leader.
National, in a way, will be relived. There’s no chance of a teal deal with Davidson at the helm, meaning they no longer have any reason to go with environmental policies.
Labour will be concerned. Any voters that the Greens will now be going for will be potential Labour voters, which could concern them.
James Shaw might be worried. Marama Davidson was built in the image of Metiria Turei – the same “radical” branch of the greens which hurt their vote so much last year.
Whether or not Davidson was the right choice for the greens, however, remains to be seen.
