The list of spokespeople is:

"In presenting this line-up of spokespeople United New Zealand will be positively promoting our progressive policies. Our common-sense yet innovative policies will show clearly that our party is in favour of economic progress, but with a social heart.
"The team of spokespeople and candidates will show New Zealanders that there is a wider choice than the old parties of the left and right. We will demonstrate that casting a list vote for United New Zealand is the way to ensure stable, sensible government if either Labour or National is the party of government after the Election.
With all our policies released United NZ is well placed to make the positive difference we seek," says Mr Dunne.
