Green Party Chief of Staff Andrew Campbell has announced his resignation from the position after five and a half years with the party.
Andrew Campbell has overseen the recruitment process for his replacement, and it is anticipated an appointment will be made within the coming weeks.
“Andrew indicated his intention to leave the Greens after the 2014 election, but offered to stay on to oversee the transition to our new male Co-leader James Shaw, and lead the internal change management process after James was elected,” Green Party Co-leader Metiria Turei said.
“Andrew ran our communications through our two most successful election campaigns and has been a real asset to the Party,” said Mrs Turei.
“I have appreciated the support Andrew has provided to me since getting elected, and am grateful that he chose to stay on as long as he did to lead a series of important internal changes,” said Green Party Co-leader James Shaw.
“We are sad to see Andrew go and wish him all the best for his future,” said Mr Shaw.
