Labour leader Phil Goff will not quit Parliament this term, but is staying silent on his future as party leader.
However he said his decision would be in line with his previous comments that he would leave the leadership on his own terms.
Asked if he would serve a full term as MP for Mt Roskill, regardless of what happened with the leadership, he said "absolutely''.
"I have no plans to retire from Parliament. I was elected with a very strong majority to serve the people of Mt Roskill. I've served them for nearly three decades and I'm going to keep on serving them.''
Mr Goff said he took responsibility for Labour's result in the election. However, he did not resile from their policies, saying "brave'' policies were critical for the future of New Zealand.
