RadioNZ reports that David Garrett has quit the Act Party.
Radio New Zealand understands that if Mr Garrett is ejected from the ACT caucus he won’t go without a fight and is likely to stay on as an independent MP.
However, Midday Report says he’s taking two weeks off to consider his future.
Qutting the party is the best thing he can do for Act but I can’t see how he can continue in parliament as an independent.
The next person on Act’s list in Hilary Calvert of Dunedin.
iPredict has a contract on this possibility.
