Carter to front disciplinary hearing tonight

Mon 11 Oct 2010 In: New Zealand Daily News View at Wayback

Chris Carter 2.00PM: Chris Carter will tonight face a Labour Party disciplinary hearing, where he will fight to remain in the party – although he is expecting to be thrown out. The Te Atatu MP has already been expelled from the party's caucus over his attempt to undermine Phil Goff's leadership. He will fight to remain a Labour Party member, but told Daily News on Thursday that he expects to be given the boot. Carter has already withdrawn his nomination for the Te Atatu seat but plans, at this stage, to serve out the remainder of the Parliamentary term. Tonight's hearing is scheduled to begin at 5pm. Party president Andrew Little has told Radio New Zealand Carter's continued comments about Mr Goff may lead council members to question whether he will be a reliable party member in the future.
