Green Party, six MPs

Members of New Zealand's 48th Parliament, elected September 2005

Rod Donald and Jeanette FitzSimmons were co-leaders of the Green Party at election time. Deborah Moran was chief of staff in the co-leaders' office at Parliament. Rod Donald died on 6 November. Nandor Tanczos confirmed on 11 November he would take up his option to succeed Rod in Parliament, as a Green MP. The Green Party constitution requires that the party elects a male and a female co-leader. Metiria Turei became the Green's "musterer", the word her predecessor Rod Donald used to describe the role traditionally known as "whip".
