ACT Leadership and Epsom Candidacy
ACT Leadership and Epsom
This morning the ACT Board met to choose the new leader and a candidate for Epsom.
The Board’s decision was made by a secret ballot, which was conducted by an independent auditor.
The Board is confident that its decision will give ACT its best chance of successfully contesting this year’s general election with a Leader and Epsom Candidate who can powerfully and positively share the Party’s vision with voters.
The new leader will assume the role at the Party’s AGM on the 28th of February, and until that time, will serve as the leader-elect.
It is my privilege to announce that the person who will stand as the ACT candidate for Epsom is David Seymour and the new leader of the ACT Party will be Dr. Jamie Whyte
The Board acknowledges that it had three outstanding candidates seeking selection and thanks all of them for their commitment, energy, and passion.
In particular, the Board wants to acknowledge Party President, Hon John Boscawen, who’s record of service to the Party in a variety of roles throughout ACT’s history is recognised and valued.
