In the battle for Helen Clark's old seat Mt Albert there are many possible candidates lining up to keep that seat warm.
Melissa Leigh from the National Party is the clear front runner in this previous Labour only held electorate and is likely to win the seat.
Labour is still undecided on their candidate, like they are with their tax policy and just about every policy they have a view on.
It is uncertain what every other political party is doing for this seat when the bye-election is due in June of this year.
All except the Green Party.
They are putting up Russel Norman, the current "co-leader" of the Green Party.
A man of obvious credentials and also possessing a wardrobe stocked with thick woolly jumpers.
Politcal Animal backs Mr Norman in his quest for the Mt Albert seat and urges as many Mt Albert folk to vote for him as can be relied upon to do so in that area.
We always back the underdog here at Political Animal and clearly Mr Norman fits that bill.
Get out and vote on election day, the environment will be the winner on the day.
