NZ First says list MP Brendan Horan has lost his membership of the party after informing Parliament he is now an independent MP.
In a statement after a meeting this evening, the NZ First board said Horan, by his own action in notifying the Speaker that he be regarded as an independent Member of Parliament, had relinquished his membership of the New Zealand First political party.
Horan was expelled from the caucus last week over allegations involving money from his dead mothers estate.
