Metiria Turei has announced that she will resign as co-leader of the Green Party.
The Green Party co-leader announced last month that she committed benefit fraud over a period of three years in the early 1990s. She said last week she also committed vote fraud.
Fraud is when you lie in order to gain a better advantage for yourself.
She also said that she is “highly unlikely” to return to Parliament after the election. She said she would take her name off the party list but would continue to stand in the Te Tai Tonga electorate.
She said she was hindering the Greens’ chances of being part of the next government.
