    Now, the requirements for the party’s co-leadership is that one co-leader must be female. The other person can be any gender.

    The party’s rules also state one co-leader must be Māori.
    I'm pretty open minded, but even I find that ridiculous & a contradiction.
    Dictating a gender for one position but ensure the other position is filled by one of a range of identities. Yeah that's just nonsense.

    The Greens lost their Green credentials 7 - 8 years ago imo when Shaw had his power struggle after Norman left & the likes of Hughes, who I had a lot of time for, Clendon & many other true Greens have left since.

    The rules are seen to be opening the way for Swarbrick. Love her or hate her she is their standout performer.

    Chloe is Ardern #2 - all talk and no substance. Lots of bluster but don’t expect her to deliver anything of substance.

    Well its a bit too early to say that, but suspect she would deliver them a lot of more votes.
    She's a strong communicator & telegenic & would energise the party, esp the youth vote & women. Young people esp love her & even if you don't agree with her policies, she's quite charming & appealing.

    The Green's share of vote was already at just under 12%, almost twice that of NZF & roughly a quarter more than ACT, expect it would go higher.

    Yup - exactly like Ardern!

    What will happen is that more votes will be diverted from Labour to Greens.

    White middle class NZ which has woken up to woke will make sure Labour & Greens stay out of power for a long long time.

    What a BS statement. One thing about Swarbrick is she certainly has character, Ardern to for that matter even if you didn't / don't agree with either of them at least they stood for something.

    I have no idea what Luxon stands for except self ambition, certaintly not his own Christian moral beliefs, because apparently they can be set aside as a politician.

    I had no idea what Simon Bridges stood for either, nor Muller nor Winston Peters as he will change his attack point depending on the direction of the wind.

    Collins was obvious, like Peters she wants the baubles of power.

    Seymour at least its obvious, he stands for white enriched privilege.

    What did Ardern stand for?

    All spin and no delivery!

    Chloe is exactly the same but probably worse.

    ATM IMO the current GREEN party would have to be the worst racist party in parliament based on their leadership selection policy and so if one was a intelligent voter who could vote for them ?
