English staying

Stuff reports:

National leader and outgoing Prime Minister Bill English has announced he will stay on as leader through the next election.

English was re-elected unopposed as leader by his caucus on Tuesday.

He committed to staying on as the opposition leader – a position he has held before – for at least the next three years.

This is excellent news for National. Labour’s biggest vulnerability will be on economic management and there is no one else in National who can match the credibility English has in this area.
