Harry’s gone but may be back

Both the Solictor-General and the Privileges Committee have advised that Harry Duynhoven’s seat fell vacant on 11 June due to his application to gain or restore Dutch citizenship.

The report of the Privileges Committee is worth a read and the Solictor-Generals advice will be on http://www.national.org.nz later today.

Labour and others believe that MPs should be above the law and in an outraegous and totally undemocratic move are going to force a special law through Parliament under urgency to effectively re-elect Duynhoven to Parliament without a by-election. This is a terrible precedent for Parliament to set.
