Former MP Ron Mark has rejoined New Zealand First, possibly at the expense of sitting MP Andrew Williams.
Mr Mark, who is the Mayor of Carterton, confirmed today that he would run for the Wairarapa seat. . .
It is understood that Mr Williams, who is currently New Zealand First list’s third-ranked MP, has fallen on a draft list to make way for Mr Mark. . .
If he gets a winnable position of the list it could solve the party’s leadership succession problem because there is no-one currently on the list who could follow Winston Peters.
