National Leader expresses condolences at passing of Jim Anderton
National Party Leader Bill English has today expressed his condolences to the family and friends of Jim Anderton who passed away overnight.
“Jim Anderton was a strong-minded and determined politician who was admired by friend and foe alike,” Mr English says.
“Jim knew New Zealand politics at every level, he was a strong advocate for people he believed needed representation and he was a critical figure in the evolution of MMP.
“Jim was also a highly respected leader in Christchurch. It was totally consistent with Jim's character that through his recent illness he continued to fight energetically for his views on the restoration of the ChristChurch Cathedral.
“On behalf of the National Party, I extend my sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Mr Anderton who supported him through his many years of service.”
