Labour candidate’s EPMU helper

  • September 9th, 2008

The Wellington Central Labour candidate has been asking the public for hoarding sites. Nothing wrong with that – he needs them.

But his hoarding organiser appears to be a senior EPMU official, whose contact email address is his work address.

That is the same EPMU that is sacking a staff member with the termerity to stand for ACT, on the grounds that he would be distracted from his duties.

It is also the same EPMU as was registered by the Electoral Commission as a "third party" with its own $120k spending limit,  addtional to and independent of the Labour Party. The Electoral Commission decided that the EPMU was not involved in the administration of the Labour Party, despite Andrew Little’s office holding in the party.
