Bligh said her decision to leave the party comes after the civic political party recently elected a new board that she believes shows the party has taken a "far-right" turn.

On Nov. 27, the NPA elected a new board; among those elected was Christopher Wilson, a former Rebel Media personality.

"After the AGM, the overall makeup of the newly elected board, I was shocked at some people who did not get elected or re-elected, and it was quite clear that there had been a mobilized group who had planned and had successfully infiltrated the party," Bligh said.
