Green Party co-leader Rod Donald died Saturday night at around midnight at his home in St Martins, Christchurch. Mr Donald had last week been ill with a chest infection. It was first believed that a heart attack had caused his death. However, an autopsy has ruled this out. Further tests are being done to establish the cause of Mr Donald's death.

Mr Donald was well known for his honesty and honourable nature – a man true to his principles and was seen by many as this new Parliament's man of human and community ideals. Mr Donald is survived by his partner Nicola and daughters, Holly, Emma, and Zoe. Rod Donald's public funeral will be held at the Christchurch Cathedral, Thursday, 10:30am, followed by a private burial. See...
