WELLINGTON Nike Vapormax Flyknit , Sept. 27 (Xinhua) -- New Zealand's main opposition Labour Party leader David Cunliffe resigned Saturday after leading the party to an historic defeat in last week's general election.

Cunliffe, who became Labour's third leader in as many years when he was elected a year ago, said he would stand again for the leadership in a new vote.

Cunliffe said in a statement that he had to take responsibility for the party taking just 25 percent of the vote in the general election, Labour's worst result since 1922.

He said he had been elected leader a year ago with a mandate for change and the election result had reinforced the need for change within the party.

"We need to renew and rebuild our culture, accountabilities, how we do things and present to the world Nike Vapormax ," said Cunliffe.

"Achieving that in time for the 2017 election will require experienced and determined leadership with a broad mandate," he said, adding he would put his name forward for the primary contest.

Labour's leader is chosen by an electoral college made up of 40 percent caucus, 40 percent party membership and 20 percent affiliated unions.

Cunliffe was elected after David Shearer resigned last year, claiming he was being undermined by people within his own caucus, which was understood to have been a reference to Cunliffe.

Shearer took the helm after Phil Goff Nike Air Vapormax Flyknit Navy , the former trade minister who signed the New Zealand-China free trade agreement in 2008, resigned after Labour's defeat in the 2011 election.

The party has reportedly been riven with factionalism and infighting since losing power in 2008 and successive leaderships have failed to dent the popularity of the center-right National Party of Prime Minister John Key.
