New Zealand first leader Winston Peters will not contest the Tauranga seat at the next election.
Mr Peters was the MP for Tauranga for 21 years before being ousted by National’s Bob Clarkson in 2005.
Simon Bridges won it again for National at the last election.
No surprise as Winston now lives in Auckland.
Of course the fact that Simon beat Winston by a massive 32% – 57% to 25%, may be a small factor in it also!
