National Party selects Nicola Willis for Wellington Central
Nicola Willis has been selected by National to contest the Wellington Central electorate at the general election in September.
The announcement comes after National list MP Paul Foster-Bell said he would stand down at the election, after pulling out of the candidate selection race for Wellington Central.
"It's a great honour to be selected in my home-city. I was born here, went to school in Karori, attended Vic Uni and forged my career in Wellington's thriving public and private sectors," Ms Willis said.
She is a mother of four, and businesswoman, having previously held senior leadership roles at Fonterra.
The seat is held by Labour's Grant Robertson.
