Fourth ACT candidate resigns

Scott Boness, the candidate for Auckland Central resigned on 7 August.

Boness will be replaced by former Young ACT President Felix Poole.

He follows three other candidate who have resigned in the lead up to this year’s election – Elaine Naidu Franz (Rangitata), Darren Gilchrist (Waikato) and Anto Coates (Kaipara Ki Mahurangi).

ACT media spokesman Matt Bell said the party was ‘still growing’ when asked about the resignations.

Boness did not give reasons for his resignation, telling media he would prefer to wait for ‘the other side of the election’ before making comment.

When questioned by media leader David Seymour was said to be ‘fuming’.

‘Do you think your MPs and cabinet should be subject to scrutiny?’

‘If that’s what you think makes a story…’

‘Well your political candidates leaving does make a story right?’

‘If you want to run that story go for it.’ Seymour was responding to questions following Darren Gilchrist’s resignation.

  1. Talking about freedom and then backing the political establishment around the pandemic did ACT no favours….they would have my vote had they not done this….oh well….

  2. Looks like Seymour discovered another freedom fighter, he must be in a panic, if one got through into Parliament would he be able to sack them then?

  3. Many in the ACT Party now see what and who ACT is actually serving; the Khazarian mafia and it’s Talmudic bunch in Epsom.
    Now that they know what the ‘behind the scenes’ meeting have been about, several ACT MP have bailed out, not wanting to have anything to do with the Noahide Talmudic ‘Great Reset’ transformation that the Zionistas have in store for Aotearoa!
    We notice the concerted national effort of defacing Labour’s signage with Chippy’s photo on the same with the slogan changed from ‘In it for you’ to ‘in it for me’. The latter certainly applies!

  4. Well surprise surprise! I have been trying to convince people that there is no freedom if you sign up with Seymour. He’s a dictator, not a nice person, and right in with the WEF and NWO and their plans for NZ. We are the Guinea pigs for the afore mentioned plans and we must stand up to them, starting with Seymour. If there are more freedom fighters in the ACT party, they need to take over the party and send Seymour a one way ticket to Geneva or Davos or wherever these creeps are based. My votes are going at this stage to the new NZLoyal party.
