So it seems. Newstalk ZB is reporting that list MP Melissa Lee is putting her name forward for the nomination as the National candidate for the Mt Albert by-election.
We reckon that Ms Lee would be an ideal candidate. Her speeches in Parliament so far have been excellent. She is articulate, urbane, and as an immigrant who has integrated very successfully, she can be marketed to the immigrant communities within the electorate as an example of just what can be achieved through perseverance and a desire to succeed.
We wish her well!
