Two high profile MPs have decided they don't have a future in a Judith Collins-led National Party.

Nikki Kaye and Amy Adams have announced they'll retire at this year's election - having both served their respective electorates for 12 years.

Former leader Todd Muller convinced Adams to rescind her original resignation, and lead the party's Covid response.

But Adams told Kerre McIvor things have changed under Collins.

“She is a different leader, with a different style and approach. The role she saw for me, which was a generous offer, wasn’t what I came back for."

Adams says now is the right time for her to move on and let Judith Collins put together the team she wants.
