New Zealand First is proud to congratulate Fletcher Tabuteau MP as the newly elected Deputy Leader.
“New Zealand First indicated last week that it would consider the deputy-leadership position at its caucus meeting this morning,” said New Zealand First Leader Rt Hon Winston Peters.
“After careful consideration, the caucus today supported Fletcher Tabuteau to take over the role, and I congratulate him on this appointment as deputy-leader.”
“New Zealand First extends its immense gratitude for the service of Ron Mark as deputy leader. The party recognises Ron is an integral member of the team and we look forward to him playing a key role in the current government in his capacity as Minister of Defence and Minister of Veterans Affairs,” he said.
It may come as a bit of a surprise to some that English (not Bill) is currently not an official recognised language of NZ. That is why I have got a private members bill in my name to rectify the problem.
