"I'm disappointed Rod Donald is throwing the towel in without a contest. He was a likeable character and he has certainly made an impression on New Zealand politics," says Banks Peninsula MP David Carter.
"Our own polling suggests the withdrawal of Rod Donald will make little difference to the election night result however."
"Despite the two List MPs claiming to cover electorate issues, they have only managed this in a half-hearted manner over the last three years."
"My electorate office has tackled any concerns brought to us, regardless of the constituent's political persuasion and I have been there 100 percent for Banks Peninsula."
"While the dynamics of the race for the Banks Peninsula seat will be slightly altered by Rod Donald's departure, I believe the voters will recognise that only I have actively worked the electorate, even though the other two MPs have had the opportunity."
