Future troubles for Auckland Future?

11:35 am on 31 October 2015

A west Auckland group with candidates in next year's local body elections is threatening to go to the Chief Electoral Officer to force a new rival organisation to change its name.

Future West is a coalition of Labour, Green and independent community representatives.

The new group, Auckland Future, is backed by National.

Future West member Greg Presland said it was likely to confuse or mislead voters and his group wanted the use of the name Auckland Future stopped.

Auckland Future chairman Joe Davis said it had had no complaints about its name but he would be happy to resolve any issues.
