Mere Takoko standing for NZ First
Business journalist Mere Takoko has been picked as New Zealand First's candidate for East Coast.
The seat is held by Police Minister Anne Tolley.
Ms Takoko says National is out of touch with farmers, foresters and the primary sector in general, and people in the electorate feel shut out by Wellington.
She says all sectors need to be competitive not just those that prop up Wall Street or the Shanghai Stock Exchange.
