Former Green Party co-leader and MP Jeanette Fitzsimons has died.
Fitzsimons, 75, was the co-leader of the Green Party from 1995 to 2009, and was an MP from 1996 to 2010.
While I didn’t share her political views, I admired her principled approach.
That extended to her willingness to speak out against her party when it went against its principles in supporting the wake jumping legislation.
UPDATE: RNZ has comments from her husband, Harry Parke, here.
