Todd Barclay has been re-selected to contest the Clutha-Southland electorate for National at the 2017 general election.

"I'm thrilled with the result tonight and look forward to getting on the campaign trail and earning the right to continue to serve Clutha-Southland in Parliament," Mr Barclay says.

Mr Barclay first entered Parliament at the 2014 election, winning the seat with a 14,886-vote majority and 63.4 percent of the party vote.

He is currently the deputy chair of the Law & Order Select Committee, serves as a member on the Primary Production Select Committee and is deputy chair of the Education Caucus Committee.

"I will be going forward into 2017 campaigning hard for Clutha-Southland, talking about my track record of success at delivering for local communities in Bill English's strong, stable, positive National-led Government," he says.
