Candidates for the Clutha-Southland electorate have two weeks to get their nominations in, National’s Southern Region Chair Rachel Bird says.
Nominations for the seat open midday Monday 3 July, and close midday Tuesday 18 July.
“Clutha-Southland is one of the largest General Electorates in the country, so we are looking for people who are energetic, understand local aspirations, and committed to working hard to keep a National Government that is delivering for our area,” Ms Bird says.
“Once nominations close, nominees will go through several ‘meet the candidates’ meetings before a final selection meeting at a date to be confirmed in August.
“National is proud of our democratic selection process, so ultimately it is up to local Clutha-Southland members to decide who will be our candidate at the election.”
