Wellington, March 30 NZPA - Former National Prime Minister Jim Bolger is to be removed as KiwiRail chairman, State Owned Enterprises Minister Simon Power confirmed today.

Wellington company director John Spencer has been appointed chair from July, replacing Mr Bolger.

"Mr Bolger has been a strong leader for KiwiRail since its inception in October 2008, and I thank him for his dedicated service over that time," Mr Power said.

National was highly critical of the previous Government's purchase of the rail network, but has said it will not be sold, despite complaining about it being ongoing drain on the taxpayer.

Mr Bolger's removal from the boad was amongst a raft of appointments and re-appointments announced today.
