The Dom Post reports:
Ms King, 61, was first elected in 1984 and is two years younger than Dr Cullen.
She has been tipped as a contender for Wellington’s mayoralty, which could open her Rongotai seat for Engineering, Printing and Manufacturing Union secretary Andrew Little.
However, party president Mike Williams told the Labour caucus yesterday that he intended to serve till November and then step down, prompting Mr Little to confirm that he was interested in the job. “I would be a contender,” he said.
I can’t imagine Andrew will face any opposition to his ascension. And he should prove more of an asset than the incumbent.
