Our “Tea for Two” guest this week is Mark Mitchell, the National Party MP for Rodney and the man also seeking to take on the party's top job - the leader.
So who is Mark Mitchell, what makes him tick and what drew him to politics?
He joined Trudi Nelson to talk about his life as a policeman, working in the battlefields of Iraq and why he should be the next leader of the National Party to replace Bill English.
In a recent interview with RadioLIVE, Mr Mitchell told Stephen McIvor that his 20 years experience in public service shows he has the leadership skills necessary to take on the job.
"I'm fully focused on earning and winning the support of my colleagues," he said.
Listen to the full interview with Mark Mitchell above.
