Campaign ad highlights stark choice for NZ voters

Campaign ad highlights stark choice for NZ voters

The National Party has launched a new phase in its election campaign with new television commercials and election billboards highlighting the clear choice facing New Zealand voters.

“On air now is a short 15 second television commercial highlighting the stark difference between the opposition’s spending promises and our own strong economic management,” says National’s Campaign Chair Steven Joyce.

“The simple truth is that to date Labour and the Greens have released reckless spending commitments that total up to $28 billion, and that’s before they add in Dotcom’s party.

“Labour alone has committed to a staggering $18.4 billion, a figure the Greens want independently audited.

“Even in opposition, Labour, the Greens and their mates can’t agree on basic policy, like what the top personal tax rate should be.”

“In contrast, our plan will keep growing the economy and delivering the benefits of that growth to all New Zealanders – like 150,000 more jobs by 2018, free doctors’ visits and prescriptions for children under 13, 18 weeks paid parental leave, Kiwisaver HomeStart grants for first home buyers and no new taxes,” says Steven Joyce.

This ad will be followed by more of a similar vein in coming days.

Also on air now is a new ad outlining National’s plan for New Zealand families and the benefits to Kiwi families of a strong, growing economy.

Naitonal’s election billboards are also up in main centres. The billboards highlight the clear choice between a disorganised divided mess and a strong, stable team that’s steering New Zealand in the right direction.
