Labour MP David Shearer has resigned from Parliament to take up the tough job of leading the United Nations’ mission in war-torn South Sudan.
Shearer will work alongside the commander of 18,000 peace-keepers, with a budget of about $1 billion.
This means a by-election in his Mt Albert electorate on 25 Feb 2017, the first electoral challenge for the new Prime Minister.
David Shearer was the leader of the Labour Party from December 2011 to August 2013.
