Axed Labour MP Chris Carter looks set to take up a job with his old boss, Helen Clark, at the United Nations before the end of the year.
The independent MP has just returned from a three-week trip to New York where he said he had positive meetings over working at the UN. “I had some very interesting and productive interviews, so we’ll see.”
If Carter does take up a job at the UN, he will join former PM Clark, who is the administrator of the UN’s Development Programme.
Carter said nothing was confirmed. “Until it’s in the hand, it’s not in the bag.”
If the role is confirmed, Carter said it was likely he would leave to take up the job before the November 26 election.
However his departure would not cause a by-election as it is within the six-month threshold.
Who says the taxpayer doesn’t do enough to help people find jobs. Three weeks in New York is what anyone can get. Must have been some very extended job interviews.Tags: Chris Carter, Helen Clark
