James Shaw has been re-elected as Green Party co-leader.

Earlier in the year Shaw was booted from this job after a quarter of party members voted to reopen the position for nominations.

The party held a remote election this week, with 145 delegates eligible to vote.

Shaw was the only one to put their hand up for the job. This meant delegates could either vote for him or to re-open nominations again.

All but four of the 142 delegates who voted supported Shaw’s re-election.

Shaw said it was an “honour and a privilege” to be re-elected.

His attention would now turn to ensure the Green Party was part of the next government, “with more ministers around the Cabinet table”, he said.
