RIP Efeso Collins

Stuff reports:

Green Party MP Efeso Collins has died at a charity event in central Auckland.

Collins collapsed while participating in the ChildFund Water Fun event at Britomart on Wednesday morning.

An organiser told Stuff he had died.

This is so sad. I actually had sponsored one of the participants in the event so was well aware of it. Thoughts are with his friends and family and colleagues who will be devastated.

This means Lawrence Xu-Nan will replace Collins as a List MP and when Shaw retires, then Francisco Hernandez will become an MP.
