Mr Brown would not comment directly on speculation he had told a close circle of his intention to seek a third term.

In a statement, he said he was too focused on the challenges and opportunities at hand, to be deciding what might happen at the end of next year.

The mayor has previously told Radio New Zealand News a decision about this would come later this year.
