New Zealand Prime Minister, John Key Resigns

New Zealand Prime Minister John Key who has been in power since 2008 has on Sunday resigned– a move that shocked many observers.

He has been a leader of the ruling National Party since 2006.

Speaking to reporters, John key said: “Ten years at the top is a long time” adding that he owed it to his family to step aside. “A lot of leaders stay at the top too long.”

Key, who has dominated New Zealand politics for years, winning three terms as prime minister, said he had “given everything” to the job.

“All of this has come at quite some sacrifice for the people who are dearest to me — my family” he added.

He said that his adult children had faced “an extraordinary level of intrusion and pressure because of their father’s job.

According to report, the National Party will hold a special caucus on Monday, December 12 to select a new leader.
