Bridges announces his run for leadership

The leadership bids are coming thick and fast with Simon Bridges to join Judith Collins in the contest to become the next National Party leader.

Ms Collins confirmed her bid this morning and Mark Mitchell, who became an MP in 2011, said he was considering a run for the top job.

The party’s deputy leader, Paula Bennett, said she would stand again as deputy, but not for the position of leader.

More soon.
