Gaurav Sharma believes there is plenty of support for his new political party.
The former Labour MP has announced he is quitting Parliament, sparking a by-election in his Hamilton West seat, in which he'll be standing.
Sharma told Mike Hosking he'll be announcing the formation of a new centrist party and its name and policies in due course.

Sharma will need 500 members to register that party.
