NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 10/11/2016

The youngest candidate for the Auckland mayoralty, 22-year-old Chloe Swarbrick, is eyeing a seat in parliament and wants to stand for the Greens.

She announced her intentions on her Facebook page on Friday, saying she had been thinking about what to do next after failing to win the mayoral election.

"What the campaign taught me is there is a tide for change, for progressive, inclusive, compassionate and empathetic politics," she said.

Green Party co-leader Metiria Turei tweeted "it's wonderful to have you aboard."
