Carmel Sepuloni back in Social Development role

Andrew Little has reinstated Carmel Sepuloni as Labour’s Social Development spokesperson following the sentencing of her mother in the New Plymouth District Court today.

“It has been a tough time for Carmel, but we both agreed it was appropriate she stood aside because of possible perceptions of a conflict of interest.

“It must also be remembered Carmel has done nothing wrong. She is now focussed on her portfolio and holding the Government to account,” Andrew Little said.
