The acting Labour Party president was on the investigating panel which dismissed initial bullying and harassment complaints.

Labour President Nigel Haworth resigned on Wednesday over his handling of sexual assault allegations, and Tracey McLellan was put in place as the temporary new boss.



On Thursday, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern confirmed the role could be short lived.
