Giving a major boost to long-time Labour member, lawyer, academic and activist - Duncan Webb's campaign for the Christchurch Central electorate in 2017, Party's leader Andrew Little formally launched his campaign office in the city recently.

Webb was officially announced as the Party's candidate in June when Andrew Kirton, Labour Party General Secretary was quoted as saying, “Duncan joins our growing list of energetic and forward looking candidates who will stand for labour in 2017. Our focus is on winning next year and electing a strong Labour-led government that will back the Kiwi dream and help every New Zealander get ahead.” Little expressed similar views when launching Webb's campaign in Christchurch on September 24.
