Photo: FAIRFAX MEDIA Botany voters will go to the polls in March to replace National MP Pansy Wong. She quit Parliament on Tuesday amidst claims she and husband Sammy misused her international travel perk. A parliamentary inquiry found Mrs Wong's husband had abused her taxpayer-funded travel perk for a business trip to China but cleared her of more serious wrong- doing. But with Labour continuing to ask questions and the possibility of an auditor-general's inquiry, Mrs Wong says now is the right time'' to step down. Over the past month I have felt that the allegations directed at me have been a distraction to the gov- ernment and have put undue pressure on my family and friends. I strongly refute these allegations and do not want to tie- up the government's and my time continuing to do so.'' Resigning was my decision'', Mrs Wong says, and she wasn't asked to step down by Prime Min- ister John Key or the party. Her resignation takes effect on January 17 and a byelection is set for March 5. Voting will only be for the MP, with no party vote. Mrs Wong won Botany with a 10,872 vote majority at the 2008 general elections. See www.elections.org.nz for information on enrolment and voting.
