Paula Bennett is walking away from her Upper Harbour electorate, but denies rumours that it paves the way for Air New Zealand boss Christopher Luxon to stand in the Auckland seat.

National's deputy leader will take up a list position at the next election to focus on her new role of campaign chair for the 2020 election.

Mrs Bennett won the seat in the 2014 and 2017 elections with 56 percent of the vote.

She tells Lisa Owen next year's campaign will be 'different', but laughed at suggestions the leader might also be different.
