Poll To Help Decide Anderton's New Party Name
26 March 2002
A new interactive poll, launched today on the National Party website, will help choose the name of Jim Anderton's new political party.
National MP Annabel Young says the poll is designed to help Mr Anderton come up with a fresh name for his latest Party.
"Jim Anderton has been through so many parties that he must be running out of ideas. The number of parties and MPs he has been involved with, and who have dumped him, is staggering. They include Labour, New Labour, The Liberals, The Greens, Frank Grover and Christian Heritage, Alamein Kopu, Pam Corkery, and now the entire Alliance Party."
