110% campaign for the Party Vote
“National intends to put in a 110% effort to ensure it once again wins the Party Vote in Wellington Central. Our team is geared up and our message will be very visual,” said National’s Wellington Central electorate chairperson Bridget-Anne Fowler.
Mrs Fowler’s comments follow the National Party’s announcement that the party will not be standing a constituency candidate in Wellington Central for the election.
“National remains committed to the Wellington region and is lucky to have a wonderful range of very able List candidates based here, including Annabel Young, Kerry Prendergast, Dale Stephens, and Stephen Rainbow.
In the last election National gained over 35% of Party Vote in Wellington Central, more than seven percent ahead of Labour.
“National’s candidates will be very busy and visible throughout Wellington. It is complete rubbish for Labour to say we are letting down National voters. Wellington voters will still be able to tick National, and believe me we will be giving them plenty of reasons as to why they should.”
Mrs Fowler said the Labour/Alliance bloc refuses to understand and work with the spirit of MMP. Subsequently, they will be the losers.
“We are completely open with our political allies and the public, but Labour and Alliance on the other hand prefer to play First-Past-The-Post politics. While they battle amongst themselves, we will be busy securing another centre-right victory for Wellington Central,” she said.
