Allan Peachey, New Zealand politician, Member of Parliament for Tamaki (2005–2011), died from cancer he was 62.

Allan Peachey was a New Zealand politician and Member of Parliament for Tamaki ied from cancer he was 62..

(18 October 1949 – 6 November 2011)

School principal

Before his election to Parliament, Peachey was employed as the principal of Rangitoto College, the largest secondary school in New Zealand. He had previously been the president of the Secondary Principals Association of New Zealand, and was an outspoken commentator on educational issues. An example of such commentary is his book What's Up with Our Schools?, which was released in 2005.[citation needed]

Member of Parliament

Parliament of New Zealand
Years Term Electorate List Party
2005–2008 48th Tāmaki 30 National
2008–2011 49th Tāmaki 34 National
Peachey was selected as a list candidate for the National Party in the 2002 elections, and was viewed by many as one of the party's brighter prospects.[citation needed] His ranking on the party's list (eighteenth, above several sitting MPs) was thought sufficient to guarantee him entry to Parliament, but the National Party's overall performance was poor enough that he narrowly missed out.
Peachey stood for election again in the 2005 elections. He was ranked at thirty on National's party list, but was also selected as the National candidate for Tamaki, traditionally regarded as a safe National seat. This selection caused a certain amount of controversy, as the seat already had a sitting National MP. That MP, Clem Simich, was persuaded to withdraw, and was rewarded with a high list placing and the National Party candidacy in the electorate of Mangere. He won his Tamaki electorate seat, receiving 20,956 votes of a total 36,946. The immediate runner-up in his electorate was Leila Boyle, a Labour Party candidate who received 11,446 votes.[citation needed]

"Knife in Your Back" controversy

Controversy arose when Peachey e-mailed Selwyn College co-principal Carol White declining an invitation to the school's prizegiving stating at the bottom: "Yes, I do have a knife in your back, so be careful."[1] Peachey quickly issued an apology.[2]

Retirement and death

Although Peachey initially planned to seek re-election in the 2011 election, having been renominated for Tāmaki electorate and been ranked 48th on the party list, he subsequently announced his withdrawal "to focus on his treatment and recovery from his recent ill health".[3]
Allan Peachey died on 6 November 2011, 20 days before the 2011 election and what would have been the end of his parliamentary term, after a battle with cancer.[4][5
