Tisch to retire

The Herald reports:

Long-serving MP will leave Parliament after next year’s election.

Mr Tisch, a former Party president and who became an MP in 1999, has announced he will not seek the Party nomination for his Waikato electorate next year.

Waikato is a safe National seat, with Mr Tisch having one of the largest majorities in the country when he won the seat by 16,169 votes in 2014.

18 years is a decent period of time to be in Parliament.

It is a very safe seat. I expect a number of very credible people will be interesting in being candidates.
