The greatest political hits of 2012
By 3 News online staff
It has been a busy year at Parliament for the 3 News political team.
The Government’s asset sales programme was delayed, Kim Dotcom took on John Banks and the GCSB, ACC’s board was cleaned out and Nick Smith resigned in tears.
Brendan Horan was kicked out of NZ First, Judith Collins went to court and Labour’s leadership woes continued.
Hekia Parata’s first term as Education Minister was plagued by a strained relationship with the chief executive of her Ministry, Novopay failing, losing in court over a proposed school closure, a botched merger plan for schools in Christchurch and a number of other problems.
Political Editor Patrick Gower and editor Kelle Laufiso-Finau put together a montage of some of 2012’s greatest political hits.
