Environmental campaigner Sarah Roberts has been selected as the Green Party's candidate for the New Plymouth electorate.
Ms Roberts was voted in by local branch members at a meeting chaired by Green MP Gareth Hughes.
Ms Roberts said her goal was to grow the Green party vote in the election later this year.
Last year Ms Roberts was unsuccessful in her bid to get onto the Taranaki Regional Council.
