Treaty Negotiations Minister Chris Finlayson has been named Politician of the Year by politics newsletter Trans Tasman.

Labour's Louisa Wall rated highly after getting more debate and air time over any single issue with her marriage equality bill.

Hekia Parata plummeted to 2 out of 10, with judges saying it looks as though she has moved past the point of her competence in the education portfolio, while Paula Bennett picked up points for her beneficiary bashing.
