It's been alleged the National party leadership wanted Jake Bezzant gone during last year’s election.
Concerns were raised about embellishments on his CV, but President Peter Goodfellow didn't want to do anything about it.

Former Senior Ministerial Advisor for the National party Brigitte Morten told Mike Hosking the accusations were known within the party.
“I think absolutely everyone knew about these accusations on the CV.”
