The Labour Party president's position is in doubt with the Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern refusing to express confidence in him. Nigel Haworth and the party are under increasing scrutiny after the website The Spinoff published the account of a Labour volunteer who says she was sexually assaulted by a Labour staff member last year. We speak to RNZ's political editor Jane Patterson who says Mr Haworth is "skating on thin ice".
