Compare the Party Lists on policy.net.nz
1 July 2002
All the parties contesting this year’s general election have issued and registered their Party Lists.
But, who is actually on them? What are their backgrounds? How does a voter compare these Lists?
Every voter has a List vote, so Lists are important in MMP elections.
policy.net.nz is the only place where you can compare party lists, with a clear, concise summary indicating who is ranked where for each party, their backgrounds, and with the incumbent status of all sitting MP’s. Almost all senior list member names are hot-linked to their biographies.
These are the people who will be implementing party policy after the votes are counted on July 27. Voters need this comparative information, and it is available on policy.net.nz
See www.policy.net.nz/lists.shtml It is a companion service to our policy comparisons, and our electorate comparisons.
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.
The site has no editorial or commentary, and takes no position on any issue.
