The Internet Party has named 15 candidates on its list headed by Laila Harre, who is yet to say which seat she will stand in.

The party said the list showcased a strong and diverse group of Kiwis committed to leading positive change in the digital age.

It said the candidates would contest the election "with a focus on Internet-Mana's drive for the all-important party vote".

The candidates were selected after a series of selection meetings around the country Harre said they ranged in age from 23 to 48 and reflected an impressive depth and breadth of expertise and experience.

"The candidates we've selected had no sponsors, no 'machine' behind them," she said.

"They put themselves forward because they believe in what the Internet Party stands for and are committed getting the change of government we so urgently need on September 20."

They would stand in "strategic electorates" but candidates were particularly strong in the critical Auckland region.
