A National front-bencher doesn't see any parallels between the Green Party's leadership saga and National's leadership to-and-fro.

Greens Co-leader James Shaw is seeking re-election after getting the boot at the party's AGM over the weekend, despite there being no challenger for his position.

National has faced several leadership races in recent years.

But Mark Mitchell told Mike Hosking the Greens leadership situation is very different, and shows how radical some parts of the Green Party are.

Senior Labour Party Cabinet Minister Megan Woods says it's a matter for the Greens to sort out among themselves.

She says she's sure the Greens have their processes in place and will come out of current situation stronger than before.
