Christchurch Mayor Lianne Dalziel will not seek re-election, saying she would have needed her late husband by her side to stand again next year.

Dalziel has held the mayoralty for three terms, being first elected in 2013.

Her husband Rob Davidson died last year.

Announcing her decision, she said it had been an absolute privilege to represent the city where she was born and lived all her life.
