Chch Commonwealth Games idea


Christchurch should bid to host the 2026 Commonwealth Games both as a way to kickstart the city’s stalled post-quakes rebuild and to ensure its nationally strategic potential is restored, says Raf Manji, the Christchurch City Councillor who launched his bid yesterday to unseat former Christchurch Regeneration Minister Gerry Brownlee in the safe National seat of Ilam.
Mr Manji, a 50 year-old former merchant banker who once moved in the same money market circles as former Prime Minister John Key, has carved out a reputation as a smart financial operator
He is standing as an independent to unseat Brownlee on a ticket seeking to be made Minister of Christchurch Regeneration in the next Cabinet.
