Election 2020: Green Party co-leaders front media after final rally of the campaign

Green party co-leaders Marama Davidson and James Shaw will front media after their final rally of the 2020 election campaign.

The pair, along with a number of other Green MPs, spoke to party faithful in a studio overlooking Auckland’s K road.

The venue was in the heart of the Auckland central electorate – a seat Chlöe Swarbrick is trying to win.

The campaign is the last of the election 2020 campaign for the Greens – co-leader Marama Davidson said ahead of the rally her party had a post-Covid plan.

“Throughout COVID-19, the Green Party has urged New Zealand to listen to science, health experts, and Māori and Pacific leadership.

“We have amplified the official advice to keep us all safe, and called out those drawing on peoples’ fear to score political points.”
