Wellington, Sept 11 NZPA - Christchurch mayoral candidate and MP Jim Anderton, facing speculation about his intentions if he wins the mayoralty, is making an announcement tomorrow.

Mr Anderton, Progressive Party leader and its sole MP, has previously indicated he would stay on as MP for Wigram even if elected as mayor in the October 9 election.

Since last Saturday's earthquake, he has refuted comments that he would consider leaving Parliament to be full-time mayor if he won because that was what the city needed.

Today, his office released an advisory of "an important statement of intent" to be made at his Wigram electorate office tomorrow afternoon.
