  • Former Green Party co-leader Metiria Turei's benefit fraud confession proved too risky

After a hard week, The Green Party has this afternoon announced a shake-up of what it looks and sounds like, but not what it believes in.

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

Former co-leader Metiria Turei resigned on Wednesday, saying scrutiny of her family over her past welfare history had become unbearable.

Leader James Shaw and party hierarchy went into urgent strategy meetings to overhaul a pricey campaign in four days, just six weeks out from the General election.

Gone are the billboards that had both Shaw and Turei smiling from them.

Greens leader James Shaw told a crowd in Auckland the party still holds the same values.

Mr Shaw was joined at the relaunch by fellow Members of Parliament and the Party's strongest ever line-up of Party list candidates from around New Zealand. He acknowledged why "Great Together" was no longer appropriate.

"To be frank, over the last couple of weeks we haven't been all that together, and it hasn't been all that great".

"I came to Parliament to get New Zealand moving on climate change, to restore our precious natural world and to end poverty and to change the way that we do politics".

"We believe in recycling", he said.

Shaw also unveiled a new-look senior leadership team, giving more responsibility to the top-ranked MPs including the party's chief whip Eugenie Sage and Marama Davidson.

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.

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