Barbara Stewart to retire

Stuff reports:

NZ First MP ’s husband passing away earlier this year has prompted her decision not to stand at the election in September.

Stewart first entered Parliament in 2002 and her departure takes out one of only three women in the 12-member caucus.

A well liked MP. I wish her well. She is one of the longer serving NZ First MPs.

It will be interesting if any new female candidates are ranked in winnable list positions.
