WELLINGTON - The head of New Zealand's Labour Party Andrew Little said on Tuesday he was stepping down less than two months before the country's general election.

"I've just confirmed to the Labour Party caucus that I will step down as leader to the Labour party," Andrew Little told reporters.

"There's no question the poll results that came out last week … were disturbing and very, very disappointing."

New Zealand is due to hold a general election on Sept. 23.
