From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Princes Street Labour is a branch of the New Zealand Labour Party in Auckland.

It is part of the Auckland Central Labour Electorate Committee. It is a "special branch" under the Labour Party constitution which means that members may live outside the boundaries of Auckland Central electorate and do not have to be students. Membership is open to academics and alumni. Most members are students at the University of Auckland or Auckland University of Technology. Younger members of Princes Street Branch play a large role in Young Labour, the youth wing of the party.

The branch has been described as an "ideological powerhouse" of the Labour Party. Several members have gone on to prominent political positions including Helen Clark[1] who was prime minister for nine years.



The branch was set up by Labour activists including Jonathan Hunt in the 1960s while Norm Douglas was the member for Auckland Central.[2]
