The Labour Party's candidate to replace outgoing Christchurch East MP Lianne Dalziel will be selected tomorrow.
A formal selection meeting will be held at New Brighton Rugby Club rooms from 11am.
The six candidates - James Caygill, Karen Hayes, Christina Laalaai-Tausa, Tina Lomax, Deon Swiggs and Poto Williams - will give speeches behind closed doors.
The candidate will be chosen by a selection panel made up of New Zealand Labour Party president Moira Coatsworth, a representative of the local electorate committee, a representative of longer-term local members of the party, Labour Party regional representative Rachel Boyack and affiliates vice-president Angus McConnell, with an additional vote based on the result of a ballot of all members at the selection meeting.
