Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom announced Monday he will launch a political party in New Zealand to contest next year's elections, drawing a scornful response from Prime Minister John Key. 

Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom speaks on July 03, 2013. Dotcom said his plans were still being formulated and that he had not yet chosen a name for the party.

Dotcom said his plans were still embryonic but the yet-to-be-named party would launch on January 20, the second anniversary of an armed police raid on his Auckland mansion which resulted in him being charged with online piracy.
