Cunliffe bids for Labour leadership

By Ripeka Timutimu

Senior Labour MPs, Shane Jones and David Cunliffe, have confirmed their bids for the Labour leadership after David Shearer’s resignation last week.

They'll face off against MP Grant Robertson whose bid was confirmed over the weekend.

With many betting on Cunliffe as the top contender, it seems Jones and Robertson have a tough job to secure support within the party.
