Statement on Don Brash’s resignation

National Party President Judy Kirk supports and respects the decision by National Party Leader Don Brash to step down as the party’s leader.

“Dr Brash is an outstanding New Zealander who has made an extraordinary contribution to this country and to this party,” says Mrs Kirk.

“On becoming leader, 13 months after his election to Parliament, Dr Brash rebuilt National’s support following the 2002 election.”

Mrs Kirk thanked Dr Brash for the work he has done for the party.

“The party organisation is in the healthiest state it has been in since the mid-1990s, and he can take a large part of the credit for that.

“In my dealings with Dr Brash, I have always found him to be a gentleman, and it has been a privilege to work with someone of such high calibre.

“On behalf of the party membership, I would like to thank him for his contribution.”
