Via: New Zealand Herald:
John Key is resigning as Prime Minister of New Zealand.
Key made the announcement at his weekly press conference this afternoon.
The Herald understands Key’s wife Bronagh asked him to resign but he later said Bronagh would have backed him going into a fourth term.
Key, his voice shaking with emotion, said he told his Cabinet of his decision this morning.
“This is the hardest decision I’ve ever made and I don’t know what I’ll do next.”
Key cited family reasons for leaving, saying the job had required great sacrifices “from those who are dearest to me”.
