Gareth Morgan 'not going to change' - quitting TOP candidate

From Morning Report, 7:44 am on 15 December 2017

Yesterday The Opportunities Party founder Gareth Morgan told Morning Report that TOP will be back with a new leader to contest the next general election. But in the meantime the party continues to lose candidates and members. Deputy leader Geoff Simmons has quit to go travelling, though Mr Morgan says he could be a contender to replace him as leader. Jessica Hammond Doube stood for TOP in Ohariu, and was the party's highest polling candidate. She resigned from TOP last night saying it's become apparent the party is not aligned with her values.
