This message of commitment was delivered today in Auckland by Co-leader James Shaw in his "Turning the Tide" speech at a relaunch of the next phase of the Green Party's 2017 election campaign which included a preview and release of the Party's opening TV commercial.

"We believe in recycling", he said.

The Greens had plummeted in a poll due to be unveiled that night, but she denied that was a reason in her resignation.

Mr Shaw said it had been a long week for the Greens. We ended up talking about our problems. "I want to thank those who have supported us during this time and apologise to those who feel like we've let them down".

Instead they will use the slogan "Love New Zealand", which was the party's slogan in 2014.

Em resolução encontravam-se os fogos nos concelhos de Ferreira do Zêzere, distrito de Santarém, e de Cantanhede, distrito de Coimbra.

Mr Shaw announced a number of changes for the Greens, including running a positive campaign and the reused slogan.

He announced a new caucus leadership team to take on each of these areas - Marama Davidson (poverty), Julie-Anne Genter (climate change) and Eugenie Sage (clean water).

"The Green Party is the only party that has drawn a line in the sand on the priority issues of ending poverty, taking action on climate change and cleaning up our rivers".

New candidates Chloe Swarbrick and Golriz Ghahraman have moved up into seventh and eighth on the list, nearly guaranteeing them a seat in Parliament post-September. "We will focus on the very real challenges that our country faces, and we will focus on solutions that no one else is promising, with the best MPs and the best candidates to get the job done".

A new female co-leader would not be appointed until the party's AGM next year, with Mr Shaw leading the party alone until then.
