policy.net.nz shows Crime was the issue in week #3
27 June 2002
For immediate release
The third week of the general election has seen voter interests move back towards Crime and Justice issues.
Voters who use the internet are giving clear signals of what issues concern them. They continue to check out Economic and Tax issues the most (13.0%, down from 13.9% last week), but the big mover ‘up’ are the second-ranked Crime and Justice issues (12.2%, up from 10.8% last week).
Interest in Education issues also moved down (from 10.5% to 9.1%). On the other hand, interest in Defence issues rose significantly from 5.4% to 7.4%.
This free service, www.policy.net.nz, gives voters an easy way to compare what the parties stand for, in the words of each party’s own policy.
The crisp, clean layout of each page makes comparison easy.
Each policy comparison features the party logo (hot-linked to the party’s website), the spokesperson (hot-linked to their bio), and five bulleted key points, in the exact words used by the party, on their website. These bulleted points are themselves hot-linked back to the policy document on the party’s website, allowing direct reference to the original source.
These categories match those used on the website, and each can be opened to reveal many sub issues. More than 150 specific policy areas are analysed on the site.
The site has no editorial or commentary, and takes no position on any issue.
