Dejected Nash can't put
life on hold indefinitely
Cabinet hopeful: ''I
have a great interest in
the Treaty settlement
process. There's a big
job ahead to get
achieved by [National's
aim of] 2014.''
-- Napier MP Chris
Stuart Nash is unlikely to stand as the
Labour candidate for Napier in the next
election, after being gutted'' at not
making it back into Parliament in
On Monday he said the odds of his
standing in his home city in 2014 were
His low place on the Labour list and
the strong support for National's Chris
Tremain in the seat meant he knew his
chances of making it back into Parlia-
ment for a third term would be a very
Before making a final decision he
would talk to colleagues about the poten-
tial for standing in a safe'' seat or the
likelihood of his being placed further up
the list next time around.
The worst thing is the uncertainty.
You're out there working like a demon,
knowing that whatever you do it's going
to be a really tough ask.''
He said at age 44 he could not put his
life on hold indefinitely, so if the party
wanted him he needed to be allocated a
safe seat or have an indication of where
he would be placed on the list.
I've loved it and it's been a privilege,
but at some point you have to think
whether it's time to resign.''
Moving from Napier, where his family
had lived for 150 years, would be difficult.
But that might be his only option,
whether he stayed in politics or not.
I'm looking for a job, but in reality the
type of work I do may not be available
His positions before entering politics
were all in senior business management
The man who scored the Napier seat,
National's Chris Tremain, was really
pleased with the outcome'' although his
margin was reduced by nearly 6000
It's a huge commitment that's very
tough on families and supporters.''
As the party's senior whip he was in
Wellington on Monday to manage the
introduction of the party's nine new MPs
He said while he had enjoyed the chal-
lenge of the being whip, like all MPs it is
my goal to be in Cabinet''.
He said he would be happy with any
responsibilities assigned to him, but his
particular interests lay in science and
technology, business, economic develop-
ment and Treaty settlements.
I've been learning te reo for the past
seven or eight years, and I have a great
interest in the Treaty settlement process.
There's a big job ahead to get historic
settlements achieved by [National's aim
Also very, very, happy'' was National's
Craig Foss, who took the Tukituki elec-
torate for a third term. He had enjoyed
two days off with his family, before head-
ing back to Wellington yesterday.
His majority had climbed, up from
2400 in 2005, to 7800 in 2008, to near
9000 this election -- the latter to be con-
firmed once the official count was in.
Mr Foss said after a fantastic'' election
night party, Sunday had been quality,
quiet time'' with family. He was looking
forward to knowing what his tasks in the
new administration would be.
Good guys: Max Lyver, Waipukurau, Darren Sharp, Palmerston North, Albert Solomon, Rotorua, and
Robin Hape, Waipawa.
The White Ribbon Riders
rolled into Hawke's Bay last
week on a mission to end viol-
ence towards women.
The riders, who were on a
week-long motorcycle ride all
over the North Island, shared
their message with people in
Central Hawke's Bay, Hast-
ings and Napier.
Ride leader Wayne Winiata
says the hospitality they've
experienced is truly hum-
bling. We've enjoyed sharing
time and stories with each
community -- especially those
powerful moments where we
connected with a man or a
woman who had a personal
experience of violence where
they felt empowered to open
