The New Zealand Conservative party was founded in August 2011. Its leader, Colin Craig, resigned as leader on 19 June 2015. The party have been managed by a board for 12 months now. On 19 November last year they stated on the Conservative party website that the newly elected board was looking to appoint a new leader. Six months after that announcement there is still no leader in charge of the New Zealand Conservative party.
Despite the lack of a leader the Conservative party have continued to issue press releases. Their latest release was on 8 April regarding Child Youth and Family changes by the government. How long can this unorthodox situation continue? If Political parties are boats, the leaders are their rudders.
