A former Canterbury regional councillor is the big mover in the Green Party list announced today for the upcoming general election.

Eugenie Sage, ranked sixth, jumps over sitting MP's Gareth Hughes and David Clendon.

Two MP's, Keith Locke and Sue Kedgley have announced they will retire at the November election, former co-leader Jeanette Fitzsimons has already retired and a fourth, Sue Bradford, quit after losing a leadership tussle with Turei in 2009.

Wellington's Jan Logie, who stood for the Greens in the recent Mana by-election, is at nine, with another experienced local body politician - Auckland's Denise Roche - at 11.

Metiria Turei and fellow co-leader Russel Norman fill spots 1 and 2 with the Party's five other current MPs who are standing again also in the top eight.

The party has ranked 30 candidates for the election and has an additional 14 candidates currently confirmed to contest the party vote in November.
