While Peter Dunne is on leave for a week, things are not going well…
UnitedFuture has applied to be re-registered as a political party claiming it now has more than enough members. However, it has hit a stumbling block after not providing the information in the required format. … The party had attempted to supply electronic records but the commission required signed paper copies of a member’s application.
UnitedFuture will meet with the commission today to discuss the requirement saying it would be too difficult for any new party.
Oh please. Mana managed it.
Dunne’s staff, meanwhile, have begun picking up jobs elsewhere within the Beehive.
His long-time press secretary, Mark Stewart, has been given a job in the Prime Minister’s Office.
Elsewhere Todd McClay, who has taken over Dunne’s portfolios of revenue and associate health, has taken on Dunne’s former chief of staff Rob Eaddy and senior private secretary Anne Small.
Guess they can read the writing on the wall.
