The Labour Party has suspended MP Gaurav Sharma from the caucus effective immediately.

The caucus held a special meeting this afternoon to decide what to do with the Hamilton West MP, who has accused his colleagues of bullying. Prime Minister and leader of the Labour Party Jacinda Ardern says the decision was reached after what she called repeated breaches of trust.
