Going... John Banks To Step Down As ACT Leader, MP For Epsom
John Banks will step down as ACT Party Leader, and will not contest the Epsom electorate in the 2014 general election.
At a press conference in Wellington today Mr Banks said he would stay on as representative for Epsom until the election, and will remain leader until the party's AGM in March next year.
The Act Party leader has been under fire since he was taken to court and privately prosecuted for failing to properly disclose political donations from German millionare Kim Dotcom and Skycity during his 2010 Auckland mayoral race.
Mr Banks said he was looking forward to his day in court, and that anyone who knew him knew he was not guilty of the charges against him. More>>
