Green Party acknowledges Rt Hon Bill English
The Green Party would like to acknowledge the Rt Hon Bill English, who announced his retirement from politics today.
“On behalf of the Green Party, I’d like to acknowledge Bill English and his 27 years of public service,” said Green Party Co-leader James Shaw.
“Mr English has held many roles during that time – constituent MP, party leader, minister and Prime Minister – and should be congratulated for both his commitment and perseverance.
“Anybody who’s involved in politics is aware of the great personal sacrifice that is required to do this job, for both the politician and their loved ones.
“For that reason, I’d also like to acknowledge Mary English and the entire English family.
“On behalf of the Green Party, I’d like to wish Mr English and his family all the best for the future,” said Mr Shaw.
