Former National MP and Auckland City mayor Christine Fletcher says she supports super-city candidate and her former mayoral rival John Banks.

Ms Fletcher is standing for the centre-right Citizens and Ratepayers Party, which on Thursday announced its candidates.

She told Morning Report she backs the man who ousted her as mayor as he has dramatically changed his policies, making a commitment to public transport and roading projects.
