The ACT Party’s in-fighting continues:
Act member Peter Tashkoff has announced he will contest party leader Rodney Hide for the right to stand for Act in the seat of Epsom.
Newstalk ZB reported that Mr Tashkoff – number seven on Act’s party list – had been scathing of Mr Hide’s performance as leader and the handling of the Heather Roy affair.
It quoted Mr Tashkoff as saying Mr Hide was a failure as a leader, a liability to the party and had to go.
Mr Tashkoff – a supporter of Mrs Roy -said pretending Act was not divided would not fix anything.
Much as Rodney is trying to turn the story away from his toxic, bullying personality and the dysfunctional state of ACT under his leadership, the public aren’t buying it. Neither, it seems, is his own party.
