ACT Party very disappointed with Banks guilty verdict
Media Release from Mr John Thompson ACT
“The ACT Party is very disappointed with
the guilty verdict in John Banks’ case” said ACT
President John Thompson.
“While ACT had nothing to do
with Mr. Banks 2010 mayoral campaign we have always found
him to be a man of integrity.”
“If John Banks is
forced to resign as MP for Epsom, the ACT Party is going to
ensure the people of Epsom are still represented. The party
will take over Mr Banks’ electorate office and will ensure
voters are able to have constituency issues handled by David
Seymour, ACT's Epsom candidate in the forthcoming general
election” said Mr Thompson.
