ACT Leader responds to the resignation of Metiria Turei

Published: Wed 9 Aug 2017 05:47 PM
ACT Leader David Seymour responds to the resignation of Metiria Turei:
"The resignation of Metiria Turei is a major victory for taxpayers, for honest beneficiaries, and for decency in politics," says Mr Seymour.
"Metiria Turei has finally done the right thing by the public and her party, but also her family who are now spared the intense scrutiny they would have faced as media investigated the undeclared support she received while on a benefit.
"ACT’s focus on this issue has been completely vindicated. Metiria would not have resigned if there was no truth to the reports fed to me – reports that I prompted media to challenge her on.
"This means we can now move on to a campaign that focuses on policy, not personality."
