Greens take third spot: NBR ignore own poll

The Green Party is leading the smaller parties in the latest National Business Review - Compaq poll.

The Greens polled 7.1 per cent, leapfrogging the Alliance on 6.7 per cent, Act on 5.4 per cent and NZ First on 2.9 per cent.

However the party has been completely left out of the NBR's published results and graphs in today's National Business Review, while other parties which polled lower are included.

"It's appalling journalism on NBR's part to ignore the fact that the Greens have jumped ahead of Alliance and Act. This is a continuation of a campaign they ran against the Green Party before the election with a series of highly critical columns and articles," said Mr Donald.

"We will be writing to the NBR to ask them to republish the results of the poll, and to give their readers the full story in the future."

This is the second poll that puts the Greens ahead of the Alliance and Act, following the Herald-Digioll published on the 24th December.

Green Co-Leader Rod Donald said both polls showed the public approved of the party's line of working constructively with the Government while staying true to the policies they were elected on.

Rod Donald MP: (03) 332 5765 or 025 507 183 Paul Bensemann, Press Secretary: (04) 470 6679

Yet the desire for change was in the majority, across the country... More>>
